As fathers, both Puck and I were having a discussion about a dance that our kids had been exposed to by their peers. If you haven't heard it by now, you are perhaps living under a rock or have better things to do than look at social media. I am, of course, referring to the "Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)" song.

A search of several internet sites, as well as asking friends what their interpretations were, yielded the results you see in this video. There are sexual terms and themes explored, so be warned if you watch. Much like the material explored, this video is not for children.
