Chopsticks Dance

The seamed pantyhose give it that authentic Filipino cultural touch.

I didn't see a Filipino in the bunch.

Back in the 60's they were all serving in the US Navy as stewards to the officers and, in their off time, lining up in front of my disbursing office window to complain (in Tagalog) why they're getting $1 less a payday after we'd been given a raise by congress.

I don't speak Tagalog and the pay increase threw the lower pay grades into a higher tax bracket effectively either negating any increase in take-home pay or, in some cases, actually resulting in less take-home pay.

That sucks (the pay/tax thing) no wonder they complained.

This has its roots in the old Filipino tradition called "Dance Dance Revolution" - after two nights of dancing everybody would go attack the nearest government office.
