I am really.... REALLY disappointed subby didn't throw in a "Oh myyy," into that headline.

I guess he has expertise in making cocks move.

The chicken dance is Italian, and only performed at weddings. This is a frank, and stupid, appropriation by people who have had their history corrupted.
 
2013-08-19 07:08:52 PM  
Meh. He uses too much wrist
 
2013-08-19 07:11:31 PM  
Well those Germans and Japanese, they have a thing.

"Star Trek" actor George Takei (ta-KAY')

Wow, thanks for the pronunciation guide guys.
 
2013-08-19 07:17:29 PM  
Germans and chickens and Japs, oh my!

InternetSecurityGuard: Germans and chickens and Japs, oh my!


Since the Chicken Dance is Italian, is this a show of support for the WW2 Axis?

Eh, for a long time I had only seen it in writing and so thought it was Ta Kie like pie until I saw his "it's OK to be Takei" logo on Facebook.

No one.

"The 76-year-old actor will lead the chicken dance Sept. 21."


As God is my witness, I though Takei was spry.

Also, he had a terrific appearance on Penn Jillette's podcast, "Penn's Sunday School" if you have a chance.

I was there (not in it though) when Weird Al led a Guinness record setting chicken dance during Cinci's German festival.  it has since been broken though, i think.  And yes, Weird Al will be better as he actually knew how to play an accordion.

You mean like every other tradition ever?

I'd better not tell you when Oktoberfest is being held in many US cities, or what we have done with Cinco de Mayo.

he's just leading a chicken dance for a dickin' chance.  he might even wear his fabulous new chicken choker.

German heritage, along with a Japanese actor?  Alliances like that might mean trouble!  ;)

well good for him.

now if only chekov could find some late in life recognition as the yakov smirnoff of the 1960s.
 
2013-08-19 09:12:28 PM  
I can't do the Chicken Dance, the Cupid Shuffle, or the Electric Slide.  Please stop inviting me to your weddings.  I do not improve with practice, I assure you.

/Target gift card is in the mail, thanks

Now, I can Polka (thanks Grandma) and drink beer at the same time.  So long as it's not a wedding, I'll show up.  Plus, George Takai!  But, Ohio sadly fails.

Takei is reaching Walken's epic level of coolness.

In some ways, the Chicken Dance is a crime against humanity.

The chicken dance is stupid and if you do it, you're stupid too.
