Can you do the chicken dance from inside a can?

One Whole Chicken...in a can
  • Begin in a large circle with everybody facing in toward the center of the ring.
  • At the start of the music, shape a chicken beak with your hands. Open and close it four times, during the first four beats of the music.
  • Make chicken wings with your arms. Flap your wings four times, during the next four beats of the music.
  • Make a chicken's tail feathers with your arms and hands. Wiggle downwards during the next four beats of the music.
  • Clap four times during the next four beats of the music.
  • Repeat this process four times.
  • After the fourth time spin to the right for eight counts with your partner
  • Switch directions and spin to the left with your partner for eight counts
  • The dance repeats, progressively getting faster and faster, until the music stops.

I used to work in grocery...restocking shelves and such at the downtown Safeway before they prettied it up. On the graveyard shift.

There is NOTHING more freaky than trying to think about "one whole chicken in a can" at 4:30 am after you have spent 5 hours throwing a thousand pounds of freight onto the shelves while creepy tweakers are trying to hide from you in the bathrooms.

Paranoia is paranoia...but a chicken in a can...thats just freakin' weeeeeeird.
