My guilty summer TV is “So You Think You Can Dance.” There are so many young ‘uns who can just blow you away with their athleticism. I still think ballroom is the funniest looking thing in the dance world. There is NO WAY to look butch doing a cha cha cha.
Last night the judges even complimented one of the male dancers, who had done some ballroom with his partner, on how “masculine” he looked. Pretty subjective scale if you ask me. I’m surprised he didn’t answer “Thankssss, GIRL!”
The highlight came, though, from the stupid girl--a tall brunette. I didn’t get to see her performance, but her post-elimination interview was HI-larious. Of course, she was sad and bitter. She complained that the judges hadn’t even watched most of her performance (I’m guessing it was THAT bad). Then, searching for some excuse other than her own lack of talent, she decided that they hadn’t liked her because she was tall and towered over some of the males. Then, with a fully serious face, she said . . .
“I think they’re racist against tall people.”
Bless her heart. Tall people have feelings, too. But I guess I’m racist against stupid people. So there.
