I'm guessing you were more envious than jealous.

I'm pretty sure he's talking about krumping, which is awesome. Unfortunately, I've only seen Asians and African Americans make it look cool. Sorry, Scott.

Generally speaking, if you have to ask "does this make me look cool?" then the answer is automatically no.

Is there a video somewhere of this so-called "cool" dancer so we can judge for ourselves?

March 12, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterIan

Got to admit. Not many things cooler than Godzilla.

There is magic in your 3rd panels. Yet again, this one is hilarious.

If I danced like this, I'd be getting a prescription for epilepsy

Scott just needs some cues to a few cool moves. Like the "Swim" and the "Chip pan fire!!!" (too British?)

If you can't dance, then can coolness be achieved simply by walking around, biting your lower lip? I'm guessing not, because when I show people the canker sores I got from constantly biting my lip, their first reaction is "ugh".

Scott, you stole my only dance move! <oh, my belly>

March 13, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterMikey

Forget that, I want to see the video of Scott dancing.

*Dances like Elaine*

Dancing Scott, Keith Haring's lawyer is holding on line one...

There has never been a better place to post this link. A happy moment.

Is one of Scott's limitations not being able to draw himself (other than in silhouette) striking that pose in panel 3? = p

March 13, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterSome crumb bum

I've tried to learn dancing, but as I predicted, it all ended in tears.

March 13, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJosh

My husband has the one same dance move as you. He calls it "The White Man Shuffle."

March 13, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterBiscus

On panel three i just can say: "There you go Mr. Meyer".

I feel compelled to share Groucho Marx's definition of wives here, which is chillingly perfect in it's technical specificity: "Wives are creatures who feel that somehow they don't dance enough."

March 13, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterkhereva

I think it's called the Harlem Shake, and it's mostly cool if other people get up and join you.
Should be videos of this, especially of the guys on the plane (I like the banana suit, myself.)

My guess is:

Particularly 0:50

That kid is definitely a cool dancer.

March 14, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterMartin

Panel one was awesome in a 'wow, I can relate to that a little too much' kind of way.

Panel 2's "I'm so dorky, I can't even describe dancing without sounding awkward" would have had me spitting my beverage all over my computer, if I were foolish enough to be drinking while reading BI. (By the way, I'd buy a t-shirt emblazoned with that "I'm so dorky..." line.)

But panel 3 really sealed it for me: I WOULD feel cool if I looked like Godzilla!

March 14, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterCR

Are you sure it wasn't Mr. T doing the Harlem Shake at a bar?

...or maybe it was that ridiculous "Gangnam Style" that was popular with the kids last year.

March 14, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterMatt

Just to clarify my earlier post:

I'd buy a t-shirt that had the ENTIRE "I'm so dorky, I can't even describe dancing without sounding awkward" quote. I mean, come on, if it just said "I'm so dorky," it would be embarassing.

Umm... moving along...

Looking a little bit closer at Panel 3's 'Godzilla dance move,' I realized that you actually DO look like the big G, when he was doing his victory hop thingy on Planet X after trouncing Ghidrah (or King Ghidorah to modern audiences) in "Godzilla vs. Monster Zero."

Well, minus the tail and back plates, of course.

Good times...

I spent a long, long time looking uncool while I was dancing before I started to look supposedly cool. Takes time and practice, like everything.

March 21, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterjaklumen

For many years I've been practicing *not* dancing in order to look cool. I feel this has been a much more successful approach that dancing could have been.
Really, I just wanted to add a post WAY after everyone else, in hopes that no one but the moderator would ever read it.
