Dancing

I find dancing to be so hilarious.
We hear a beat and suddenly our limbs have an urge to be all wiggly.



Have you ever seen a person dance that was angry?
no way!
That's why if everyone in the world would just dance at the same time we'd have world peace. Problem solved!

I agree 100%! Dancing is the solution to everything. :)

These are awesome. I can only hope mass quantities of alcohol are to blame. Of course, I shouldn't talk. If anyone ever photgraphed me dancing I'd probably look like some combination of Elaine from Seinfeld and Borat.

That's it! We should all dance!!

I have often thought the same thing! If you look at people dancing and tune out the music, it is downright hilarious. Dancing makes me happy either way: as a dancer or a spectator.

I have seen angry dancing - in Footloose! And when Bret does his angry dance in Flight of the Conchords! But even their angry dancing makes me happy, so that is all ok!
