The girls as a whole are generally behind the times when it comes to social phenomenon. They may have internet access, but it’s generally used for ordering supplies, and looking at pictures of semi-naked men.
However, by accident, they found out about the students that did a Harlem Shake in the college library, and thought it would be a good idea to wind the local library up (They refuse to drop Gayle’s £40 fine for books being months overdue).
And so they turned up at the library, giant ‘boom box’ ready to blare out the Harlem Shake music (Colette took 40 minutes and a lot of swearing to get the music from the internet – legally of course).
Claire was up. She danced like a looney while the music blared out, but there was the owner of the local butcher’s doing the same thing. They squared up to each other for a Harlem Shake dance off, music pounding, the girls sitting patiently waiting for the key change.
Then it happened. Suddenly the girls put on funny wigs, pulled off cardigans to reveal bright fluorescent outfits, and they danced like maniacs across the room. At the same time, a bunch of guys all working in or with the local butcher ripped of jumpers and leaped about in bright, flashy costumes.
Oh oh. It was a turf war. Crafty ladies verses the Butcher boys, and everyone in between scarpered.
I was going to say it was like a scene from West Side Story, with the Sharks and the Jets fighting it out through dance. However, it was more a Harlem Shuffle than a Harlem Shake (except for Louise who does have some shaky hands) as the chronically unfit crafty ladies, and the generally obese butcher boys struggled to pull any moves whatsoever.
One of the butchers looked like he was doing breakdancing, but he’d only dropped his wallet, and spent the rest of the song leaning over and spinning around and around trying to pick it up.
Then it got worse. The song ended, and it had been taped over an old Abba album, so suddenly we were half way through Waterloo. And at the same time, the butcher’s ‘boom box’ hit us with Sinitta and So Macho. The dancing continued, getting more intense as both sides sashayed around the library. Both Maritha and Ben the Butcher danced at each other, and there was a collision of heads, leaving both of them unconscious on the floor. That got everyone’s back up, and suddenly spinning men and women were pointing and shouting at each other.
“Hush” shouted the head librarian. Everyone stopped and looked at her, then at each other, then finally to the floor. “Sorry”, came the reply from both crafty ladies and butcher boys.
And that’s how our design team were banned from the local library.Debbie
