It’s a sign of the times when even the most minor person with the most minor role in association with a sort of celebrity dies, and it’s news. Here’s what I mean. Today, several papers I read published an article about the death David Alexander Smith a/k/a “ICE”–the choreographer of Olympic Gold Medalist Usain Bolt.
Why the heck would an Olympic track star from Jamaica, who is perhaps a Muslim that can’t spell Hussein(?), need a choreographer? Well, by “choreographer” they mean that he taught Bolt his, um, “touchdown dance”–this stupid “Gully Creepa” dance he did when he won his gold medal. This is a celebrity? Hilarious.
Next thing ya know, I’ll be reading the obituary of the person who once gave Obama a hanky in which to blow his nose while on the beach in Hawaii.
Here’s video of Usain (Pat and Vanna, I wanna buy an “H”) Bolt doing this Gully Creeper, er . . . Creepa thing. Watch it and tell me if the guy who, um, “invented” this stupid gyration is worthy of worldwide obituary notice. Below that is a news story from Jamaica about this dude. Strangely, they no longer speak English in Jamaica, and I need a translator for most of the people being interviewed.
