In the midst of my Mad Men marathon (the advertising advocates alliteration), I have to say that the Twist was a gift for lazy white people like me. Thanks to Chubby Checker, no longer did we have to spend hours learning to Fox Trot, Waltz, Cha Cha -- just give a partial spasm (or "twist", if you will) and try to move your hips. Voila! Dancing! Thank you, sir!
