Sorry Dr. Sheldon Cooper, The Israel President Just Took Your ‘Spot’ And Amy Is Okay With It!

There are two universal truths that are indisputable. One, everything that is born and lives, has to ultimately die. The other is that nobody, absolutely NOBODY can sit on Dr. Sheldon Cooper’s spot.

For the uninitiated, one of the longest running jokes on the show The Big Bang Theory has been about Jim Parson’s character, Dr. Sheldon Cooper, being overly possessive about ‘his spot’ on his couch.

Now there’s a very…umm… sensible reason why Sheldon has called ‘eternal dibs’ on that particular seat on the couch.

In his own words,

“In an ever-changing world it is a single point of consistency. If my life were expressed as a function on a four-dimensional Cartesian coordinate system, that spot, at the moment I first sat on it, would be (0,0,0,0).”

You see now, how important this is, right? Entire episodes have been devoted to plots where people messed with Sheldon’s spot and had to pay a price for it.

Which is why what happened recently might just piss off Shelly boy!

Actress Mayim Bialik, who plays Sheldon’s girlfriend-turned-fiancé, Dr. Amy Farrah Fowler, took a trip to Israel recently, where she met with President Reuven Rivlin. And then this happened!

Bialik was in Jerusalem to deliver a keynote address at the Global Forum for Combating Antisemitism. But looks like something totally unexpected got added to her itinerary when the Israel Prez wished to recreate a famous Shamy (Sheldon + Amy) moment from TBBT!

OMG! That’s the cutest thing! Also, is it just me or did the Prez perfectly nail Sheldon’s expression?

Poor Sheldon! First his fiancé is so far away and now someone’s taking his spot too! And what was Amy’s reaction to this?

Well, Amy was completely on board! Mayim Bialik tweeted how she was super thrilled about this unexpected photo op!

She went ahead and shared the OG Shamy picture too and can I just say, this perfect imitation is the best form of flattery!


Well, looks like Amy is going to have some serious explaining to do when she gets back to the show, considering TBBT is gearing up for the Sheldon-Amy wedding in its Season 11 finale!

As for us fans, we absolutely loved this recreation. In fact, one of them had a rather interesting suggestion too!

Okay, done. And maybe we can replace Dr. Sheldon Cooper as host?

Hahaha BAZINGA! You know we’d never do that!
