    A million thanks from the residents of CrappyComputerLand!

    The Monty Python bit does indeed fit well with Domenech’s coaching style during yesterday’s France-Mexico match.

    And the Buttdance! Amazing!

    Thank you!

      At least the English can tell themselves that the French are no better than they are. That’s about all one can say for the English.

      I’m sure it’s already evident, but the Butt Dance can be watched multiple times for increasing enjoyment. A fellow connoisseur of the Butt Dance, Nan F., confessed that it gave her so much pleasure that she almost cried.

        I had to watch it twice, then I had to call M in from the garden to watch it twice again.

        I’m pretty sure I’m going to think of the Butt Dance every time I go out for a run for a while (being a bit out of shape). The music has the perfect beat for a quick run.
