The learning curve on skanking isn't very severe. I betcha you'd catch the hang in no time.

Well, I'm a nondancer, so it's a nonissue.

Huh, I wouldn't have thought punk dances would have names and prescribed moves.

downtown guy said...

Oh yeah, absolutely. Although skanking started with rocksteady and ska.

I never could master skanking which I always found very embarrassing when I was a dancer. Or maybe I mastered it just fine but felt like a moron anyway. I will never know since I am certain I would break my neck if I tried now.

I can do the jerk. And the pony.

downtown guy said...

ZG: probably the second.

Mama: but can you do the mashed potato?

Sarcastic Bastard said...

I've never learned to skank either, but I have known skanks.

downtown guy said...

I was waiting for a joke like that.

Sarcastic Bastard said...

Happy to help, my brothah.

Ms. Moon said...

I could never bring myself to do the mashed potato. I mean, PLEASE!

downtown guy said...

Ha!

It's ok, because moonstomping is way cooler anyway. I mean if you're gonna dance.

I think my favorite thing about this is that it seems to be Frankenstein's monster.
