“She was no stripper with a heart of gold, that was for sure. A heart of steel, more like.”

  • Shannon Celebi, The Lion Lies Down with the Lamb


I’ve been told my dance style ranges from ‘drunk John Travolta at a braai’  to ‘stripper whose rent is due tomorrow.’  Some songs just wake up our inner ecdysiast.  I don’t care if I’m out doing Christmas shopping in Toys R Us – when The Prodigy comes on I’m insta-Magic Mike up in that bitch. Halfway through Hot Ride and I start thinking, you know what, I don’t need a real job. I could just do this for a living. And then I remember I’m fat and I’m a lousy dancer.

I figure at this point I could just come out on stage wearing nothing but kneepads and people would pay me to put my clothing back on. Like a backwards stripper.

“The sun rose like a stripper, keeping its glory well covered by cloud till it seemed there’d be no show at all.”
