    Is disco "Islamic", is it allowed in Iran? What about rave parties?

  • Longtobefree||

    No, and no.

    If I live to be 100, my brain will still insist on picturing a bunch of sweaty, enthusiastic people hopping on and off Roombas every time I read the word Zumba.

    Dressed in shark costumes?

    Thanks. Now every time I hear "Roomba" my brain will think "Uber for cats."

    This gives me hope for the future of humanity. Could anyone have imagined this just 20 years ago?

    I like how the chick in the background is just going about her business as if that's the most normal thing in the world.

    I like how after a minute of some boring, lamer cat, a sweet fucking dog pops up and saves the video.

    Fast forward 50 years and the zumba is banned in this country by the national council of cultural appropriation because the letter is greek. In other news that day the social justice liberation front releases a video showing the beheading of Josh Williams. Williams was the man who caused a furor after he released a youtube video improperly using the pronoun ze. He disappeared shortly after serving an 18 month prison sentence for the offense. Authorities caution the public that most social justice warriors are peaceful.

  • Fuck you, Shikha (Nunya)||

    I for one applaud Iran. Latin music? Exercise? White privilege? The whole thing is about cultural appropriation and must be stopped.


  • Fist of Etiquette||

    What isn't against Islamic ideology?

  • Cynical Asshole||

    That probably would be the shorter list.

  • BestUsedCarSales||

    Apparently Italian Sports Cars and cologne.
