Lord of the Flounce

Updated on April 17, 2011
Look at me, look at me, look at me, look at me, look at me, look at me, look at me, look at me, look at me, look at me....
Look at me, look at me, look at me, look at me, look at me, look at me, look at me, look at me, look at me, look at me....

What is it with the Irish and their method of dancing? I mean look at Riverdance and Lord of the Dance. The feet are goin a million miles an hour, but the arms, they dont do much. The whole upperbody is as straight and immobile as an ironing board sitting vertical against the wall while from the waist down its something akin to an eppylectic being electricuted happenin down there.

Perhaps its because if they needed to, they could hold a mug of beer.... a bottle of rum .... a flagon of wine? They could dance the night away, while still drinking, and not spillin a drop. Stopping only long enough to change partners and pick up a new one with a slurred and sleazy pick up line "which one of youse layyyydies wud like to be moi next victim- ah, dancing partner?"

Can you imagine Michael Flatterley's grandmother, "Mikey! Don't drink and dance!"

Michael would of course have to reply "Shut up nan! I'm busy working..... me magic !!!!"

And now for your viewing please, I'll show you three of the most amazing dance sequences of the last 100 years (or so) all whom would give Mr Flatley a flounce for his money.

The only way this could be any funnier is if the chimps were dress in pirate costumes

Do you like to flounce the night away?

      the 3 videos are representative of the various stages of inebriation. the more you drink, the worse you get, but the better you think you are. my skills lay sum where between videos 2 and 3.

      Oh my gosh... too funny. I love that Napoleon Dynamite dance scene... I'm embarrassed to say we own the movie and just watched that very scene yesterday. This hub definitely was made by the three videos at the end, Several Ninjas. Good stuff.
