What do you call a white man who can dance?

Gay.

From the headline, I thought it was video footage from my wedding.

And another... Mikhail Baryshnikov. Married once, three kids.

And another... Fred Astaire. Married twice, three kids (one from his first wife's previous marriage).

And another... Donald O'Connor. Married twice and had four children.

And another... John Brascia (lead dancer). Married twice. Bing Crosby. Married twice, lots of kids. Danny Kaye. Married once, one daughter.

Which means she's got it right. Dancing should be fun!

Wow, that was adorable.

You know that was a joke, right?

DNWTFV, but...is there a shortage of hard evidence?  I know there are exceptions, some listed above, but I thought this was common knowledge.

Crewmannumber6: Doesn't mean we shouldn't try


Sometimes we really shouldn't, but overall I'd agree.  ("We" as a people, not necessarily me personally.  I generally shouldn't bother trying.  Maybe the slow ones, like Rain Man.)

Yes. ;-)

But won't pass up an opportunity to cheerlead for male dancers.

This sort of unbridled enthusiasm is unacceptable.  Medicate that child.

Canton: Dancing should be fun!


Singing should be fun, too. But most people can't, so they don't in public.
 
2013-10-21 07:08:34 PM  
Fine, I concede the argument and leave you with this classic dance routine by the whitest of whites:

Unless they're in preschool. Then all bets are off.

Or the shower. In that case, all clothes are off.

Just because a man gets married and the old lady craps a couple of kids doesn't mean he fathered them.

Why bother white knighting for male dancers, they're never gonna have sex with you!  *checks profile*

Proceed.

No one has sex with me.

Those were examples of a VERY good dancer dancing badly for comedic effect.

What's that tugging at my lip?
 
2013-10-21 09:57:02 PM  
All white men are born being able to the "white boy shuffle". Feet planted, wiggle left, wiggle right. Arms in "running" pose. If a white man sticks to his natural dance, he is fine.

When he tries to dance like a non-white person is when he looks the fool.
 
2013-10-21 10:36:12 PM  
Well, seemed to me only the white people were actually trying to follow the choreography.

Points to the energetic girl, but she's not exactly dancing well, either, and worse, she's not following directions.

I think there was one other little girl of color there, if you look at the very first couple frames showing most of the lineup. Who knows what she was doing. Probably what the rest of the kids were doing. More or less.

But more to the point, they're preschoolers. You have to expect some silliness from at least one...

Absolutely. I don't think "white people can't dance" really is all that related, or fair (not that a Fark headline needs to be fair, just sayin').It's a bunch of little kids getting the experience of performing in front of a large crowd. Like I said, I'd give the one girl points for her energetic display, but hopefully, she learns to follow instructions better, or she'll be sitting out recitals down the line.

Point well taken.

A cousin of mine, when she was about that age, actually got asked to leave her ballet class (well, I think they talked to her mom, really) because she wasn't disciplined enough. She always has danced to the beat of her own drum.

Although she is perfectly good at following directions now, in spite of being a free spirit. Ballet just was not the place for her, back in her preschool days...

The horrible part of me thought "if she's rewarded for this, there's yelling in a movie theater in her future."

White people can't dance?  How many professional ballroom dancers aren't white?  White people dance.  Other colors do the funky chicken
