Whoa! Rushed right over to amazon.yuck but there'd been so much traffic generated by your post, Paul, that their site had crashed!

Oh.. the horror all those pixels that gave up their life's light for that. :blank:

Well sir, I have a silly walk and I'd like to obtain a Government grant to help me develop it.

My favorite part is from 6:18-6:40 as the handheld camera wobbles and shakes, but never actually turns so that we might see the person.

He's the guy that did the "7 deadly vices and virtues" building at UC San Diego. Saw it just about every day while I was a grad student there.

They say that all art speaks for itself, which raises the question: "If a tree falls in the forest, and no one hears it, is it Art?"

@KDP: This guy is clearly no threat to John Cleese.

I was expecting Tyrusguy to chime in with the Ministry of Silly Walks, he loves those guys!

Would not play for me the first time. Now that I've seen it, it just looks like a trannny practicing a sexy walk.

Well Patty I've been busy today and KDP beat me to it! :lol:
But maybe I should mention my dissertation on the Anglo/French silly walk entitled "La Marche Futile" :lol: :coolsmile:
