Don't Believe in Modern Love

According to a just-published study by a bunch of British scientists, who apparently had nothing better to do than spend many, many bazillions of hours rigorously analyzing male dance moves, there does, indeed, seem to be a pattern of movement within the male body that signifies to us females their status as A-Number-One reproductive machines. In other words, some guys got it, and some guys don't, and it all depends on how they hoof it.

Read about it and watch the goofy video here.

Ladies, I don't know about all y'all, but I think it would be much more useful to fund a study that would tell us which men lounging in a particular bar on any given night are most likely able to do the following:

A. Cook
B. Clean
C. Put the toilette seat down
D. Memorize the phone number to the local Chanel boutique

That is all.

My own dancing perceived dancing ability is directly proportional to the amount of tequila ingested. No one else might think I'm a good dancer, but the more I drink, the better I get. Now, for the spousal unit ... he is willing to dance and that is a plus!

Good morning Moi,

A little hard to pick you out of that crowd the camera was moving pretty quick.

I love to dance and I think I've got 3 1/2 out of 4. I don't suppose memorizing channel bouy's counts?

Jenny said...

Ohhhh, Mr. Boxer isn't allowed to dance. Bwahahahahahahah. I told him it's a good thing he's pretty. Hee.

Did you see the amazing David Bowie doing a few boxing moves in the very beginning? He's a boxer! I saw Iman on Oprah a few years ago talking about losing weight after her baby was born and Bowie told her to take boxing lessons and she did... crediting it with her ability to regain her pre-baby weight.

and now I have to go back and watch this clip again and again. *sigh* the man doesn't age like the rest of us. *sigh*

what year is this?

moi said...

Pam: Most things in life become much more easily doable if tequila is involved.

Karl: Not unless those channel bouys come with sparkly bits!

Boxer: That was, gosh, 1983 I think? The Serious Moonlight Tour. My best friend and I had to get permission from our parents to take the party bus to the show in Phoenix. Once there, we pushed, shoved, and clawed our way to front row, just right of center. They were filming during the concert, but may have also filmed at other shows as well.

If there were a direct link between dancing and reproductive capacity, then the UPS man must have been delivering something other than packages some years back.

moi said...

Czar: Your UPS guy dances? Shoot. All mine does is curse the dogs and leave packages in the rain.

Big Shamu said...

All I know about men dancing is that the Gay Boyz are most excellent. Could be a bit of a fly in the ointment.

moi said...

Shamu: Hmmm . . . you have a point there. Then again, most women most likely secretly wish to be mated to a gay man, so there's that, too.

Well now, Papa Cracker tole me this when Uncle first showed up on the childhood home porch, "Baby Doll, I knows that boy can dance like a bat outa hell, but dancin' ain't the same as makin' a livin'"

P.S. no offense to no boyz, but Moi, that idea ain't never been a blip on mah radar. But I imagine some boyz is burns the dance floor!
