Keep Westword Free

A dancing man stars in your moment of schadenfreude

We all feel happy sometimes. Sometimes, we feel so happy we just can't contain ourselves: We have to dance! It's just that, if we happen to be that happy anywhere near the street, we might temper our excitement for just a second to look out for any high-velocity projectile that might be coming our way -- like, say, an ice cream truck.

Because it may be fun to dance, but it is not fun to be in full-body traction. Really, it's a lesson we all might have learned from the pilot episode (and every opening credits sequence) of My Name is Earl. But maybe this guy doesn't watch that show.

Whatever the case, our sympathies go out to dancing guy -- and so does our gratitude. Thank you, whoever you are. Thank you for the lulz.

Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
