Do the Twist!

This scary graphic of noseless and mouthless aliens conducting an intergalactic diplomatic mission comes from Ray Charles's 1961 album, Do the Twist!, Atlantic 8054.

I thought the twist involved some mild booty shaking but apparently its just waving your arms and giving each other a threatening lean. My bad.

Jules, mild anything never entered into The Twist. At least not the way we did it.

These are actually ancient heiroglyphs depicting Luke and Leia doing the Coruscant Stomp (note the hair on the female in 1a -1c).

Strange, this looks a lot like the graphic they used in my sex ed classes in middle school.

Nethie - you must have gone to a Southern Baptist school. They tend to view dancing as a precursor for sex.

Mo. Synod Lutherans were/are no slouches on the dancing, makeup, and bare knees thing either.
