First: Wonderful stuff — and fun. Bonus: Father Ted clip.
Second: What is wrong with these people?
A masked teen who took to the streets Tuesday night to pay homage to his favorite hip hop dance group was mistaken for a mime and asked by police to leave because “some residents apparently find mimes disconcerting,” according to police reports.
Sorin Dumitru of Buffalo Grove, Illinois, was dancing on a street corner. Just for fun.
But not used to seeing street performers in a residential neighborhood, some neighbors were confused and called police.
When police arrived at around 5:30 p.m., they told Dumitru that he might be dancing too close to the street, particularly as it was getting dark, he said.
“Dancing too close to the street, particularly as it was getting dark.” See synonyms: (1) fear, (2) stupidity, (3) demands for conformity, (4) humorlessness (5) Get off my lawn, you kids!
And what’s wrong with street mime?
