bergoglio joke of the day

bergoglio joke of the day

how to dance the bergoglio

The basic step is one step forward and two steps backward.

The weight is shifted from left to right, but always maintaining more weight on the left.

The music is usually tango, although the latest trend is to use punk rock sung by old washed up former "stars" or new covers of tired old 80s disco classics sung by new wannabee "stars" dressed as nuns.

The dance starts by one of the partners bowing his head on the chest of the other who kisses him on top of his head. This opening move is referred to as "the dialogue".

The dance is performed by two males. Traditionally one of the partners is referred to as "jorge" and the other as "bart".

In theory the lead partner is "jorge" but in practice bart and jorge are co-leaders, although this can cause some confusion for the dancers... and also the audience.

After the opening "dialogue" the rest of the dance troupe dressed in red forms a circle around the lead dancers. Their task is to try to imitate the moves of the lead dancers which can be quite difficult since the dance is so unpredictable.

If one of the members of the troupe is unable (or unwilling) to imitate the moves of the two lead dancers then they are escorted to the "maltese room". This is a separate isolated area.  There is no admittance back into the dance from the maltese room.

Eventually all the dancers become exhausted and dizzy from all the hopping and contortions and spinning and fall on the floor in a pile of bodies.

.... this is when the real fun begins...

I'm getting dizzy just watching all of that spinning...

... and the contortions required to follow the lead dancer dressed in white...

... call him "jorge"... that's what he likes...

... right, "jorge"... he's a very accomplished dancer....

... yes, he learned those intricate tango moves in argentina...

... in the whore houses...

... oh no, they dance tango in the cathedral these days...

... that's good... i guess... i still can't get used to two men tangling their legs up that way...

... oh, but it's very trendy and popular...

... i know... but i am having a hard time appreciating this new fashion... it must just be me...

... no, it's not just you...

  1. Michael, Great job once again! Sometime this coming week we will publish this on CMJ with photos and videos and of course a link to your blog. Really drives home the point. Would put it up today but have an explosive interview Francis did with Enrique Cymerman going up. CMJ

    1. Hi CMJ,

      That will be super-cool! I'm looking forward to it whenever you get a chance.

      For music, I would like to suggest "por una cabeza" -- a classic argentine tango by Carlos Gardel.

      There is a very good video of it with Al Pacino in "the scent of a woman". (Copyrighted, so you probably won't want to use this. Maybe some still shots.)

      Of course you understand that there is a very disturbing underlying sexual tension in this video. Hollywood has very subtle (and not so subtle) ways of spreading its perversions.

      And keep up the great work you do at CallMeJorge blog. I don't know how you manage to keep up with all of bergoglio's madness....

      Here is a link to your blog for those who are unfamiliar with it.
