There is a new dance craze sweeping the nation and it comes from a song that includes lyrics so foul that if you or the FCC understood what was being said there would most certainly be outrage. The fact of the matter is: most people don't know what it means to "Superman a ho" and thus it is fine to say it on the radio and fine for kids to sing along. (If you are one of those folks who doesn't know what it means to "Superman a ho" you can click here for a definition, but be forewarned: it's not pretty.) If you want to know more about the fella responsible, Soulja Boy, and/or this whole phenomenon, click here and check out Weiss's commentary.

Although I find the music stupendously imbecilic, I find great beauty in the dance, which reminds me of the tribal moves I witnessed in West Africa. Below is a video of Soulja Boy demonstrating the proper technique. Because the kid is a pretty annoying speaker, let the video load completely and then drag the bar forward to the 2:29 mark to watch him and his backup dancers perform the entire dance.
