You know that scene in Mary Poppins, when Dick Van Dyke starts dancing with the penguins? Needing to become more penguin-like, at one point he sort of hitches down his pants so that the crotch is around his knees and starts waddling.
Well, today as I was walking to the library I found myself behind a hip, urban gangsta type, wearing an oversize green tracksuit with a low-slung waist and the crotch hugging his knees. Thus encumbered, his walk was more of a rolling waddle.
So here’s the question: if you were a hip, urban gansta, would you go out of your way to look like a green, plush penguin?
