Michelle Obama Wants You to Dance About a T. Rex to Lose Weight
Washington Free Beacon ^ | April 17, 2014 | Staff

Posted on 04/17/2014 9:26:31 PM PDT by lbryce

First Lady Michelle Obama’s anti-obesity campaign “Let’s Move” is encouraging kids to dance for the arrival of a dinosaur’s bones at the Smithsonian to achieve an active lifestyle.

The Let’s Move blog explained on Wednesday:

Yesterday, an exciting new addition to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History arrived: a 66.5 million year old Tyrannosaurus rex.

In honor of the T. rex’s arrival, the Smithsonian is encouraging people to get up and dance. They’ve teamed up with Alaskan artist and musician Ray Troll and his band, The Ratfish Wranglers, to create “National Rex,” an original song celebrating the dinosaur’s arrival and they want you to send in a 30 second video dancing to your own original “Rex Two-Step.”

“Here at Let’s Move!, we’re all for getting active, and dancing is a great way to add activity to your daily routine,” the campaign said. “So why not grab a camera and show the T. rex how you move?”

How about releasing a quorum of hairy, Michelle 'Bigfoot' facsimiles into schoolyards across the country, get the weight to really fall off the kids as they evade prehistoric First ladies in fear of their lives and forget about losing even an ounce dancing to the beat of petrified dinosaur bones.

If someone else suggested that she do this they’d be called racist.

That is quite funny. Especially so because I am quite fond of the song. That's what you would definitely call an oldie.

(T-Rex) Very,very oldie.

But conversely, it’s that much more mass to move.

A friend used to tell me that because I was skinny, I was a better runner, but yet, I had much less muscle mass to move my own body.

If she jumps, would they know it in China?

I don’t know why the term is used to describe the phenomena, but “jump the shark” means that a person or a particular social institution, TV show, etc having achieved its highest level of popularity, importance, and that it is now passed its prime to eventually fade out, away.

“Happy Days”, the Fonz took to water skis and went over a ramp to jump a shark. America reached for the remote control.

It comes from the TV program Happy Days which was very popular but ran out of ideas. The had one of the cool characters (Fonzi) jump over a shark on water skis. The show cratered badly after that and went off air

You’ll need congressional approval on that.

Ray Troll and “The Ratfish Wranglers”

Lyrics:

Yo, hey listen’ up ya’ll

Got a party going on, on the National Mall

From excavation on location

One cool Rex going on vacation

Dig it, ya’ll come on

Dance and sing cause we got it going on

Dr. J and his posse in effect

Pay your respects to the national Rex

The Smithsonian is getting ready to crown

The king of dinosaurs and he’s coming to town

Oh yeah, pay respects

One cool Rex has joined the nation
