Today is the day to join the flea circus.
Were you hoping to listen to my reading on NPR but missed it back in October? I finally dug it out of the archives. You can find it here (click on the "Writers' Block Party" link.)
Last week Mr. Ced Stines pinch hit with a great hip-hop oriented list, so I'm going to follow up with a much worse one. In case you don't know, (Mom), the band Outkast implores you to "shake it, shake-shake-shake it like a Polaroid picture" in their song "Hey Ya." So I put on my jockey outfit and thought up some alternatives.
Other Ways to Shake It
Like a bus without shocks
Like an insensitive person making fun of epileptics
Like somebody who just got the bejesus scared out of them
Like a craps player
Like a coke head
Like one of those robotic dancing flowerpots
Like a golf player with the yips
Like a really strong electric toothbrush
Like a Snapple drinker
