What You Missed If You Didn't Do HammerTime

If for some reason, while growing up, you were not allowed to dance because of religious views (you know, 'don't dance, don't drink, don't smoke, don't chew, don't go with guys/girls who do') then you totally missed out and I'm really bummed for you. I mean, growing up without HammerTime?

Here's what you missed. No, really, you're welcome. (Ehem)

You know what was missing? Achy Breaky Heart! That's okay, because I am postponing my What I Learned This Week post in the hope of being able to add the Achy Breaky Heart dance to the list....It is surprising what is available on Comcast Demand...

At one time I totally knew the Achy Breaky Heart dance.

I love this video! I saw it a couple years ago and forgot all about it!

I confess to doing every single one of these dances at some point, although not half as well as this guy! Except the worm. My body doesn't do that.

He's gotta be a huge hit at wedding receptions.

There's not one of those dance moves I can do without looking like a total freak. Now if they ever invent a dance move that looks like you're riding a bike, I'm in.

Do you suppose @charliewetzel has any old video of Steph anywhere? That would be totally cool. How about you, Beth? Any video??

I'm a dancing fool! I love this. And Achy Breaky Heart. Macarena, Electric Slide...you name it!

I do, in fact, have a video Candy. I actually taped a snuggie video with me doing some dances for Katdish after she sent me my snuggies...but we never put it on the web....well, Frank CAN do it (I'm hopeless at that stuff)...but it was going to take more time, effort and money than he had at the time because it's an old camera and then it kind of got neglected.... I promise to bring the tape to Chicago whenever we meet. There are three lovely dances:
1. Macarena
2. Hammer Dance (kind of)
3. Hamster Dance, which is my specialty

I gotta see the Hampster Dance Beth. Cause I don't think I've ever seen that one.

And Candy, there is a Freak dance. Just so you know.

Did anyone else get tired just watching him dance?

I have to say, it's amazing how many of those dances I don't know. Clearly I don't get out enough.

I love this video. This and the Numa Numa kid are saved on my desktop, so I can quickly get to them when I need a laugh.

Love it...especially the Brady Bunch reference...lol!

I dance like a redneck white guy. That said, I can do me some boot-scootin' boogie when the mood strikes me.
