Dance, monkey, dance

13 Aug 2007

Thanks to my housemate, I say ‘dance, monkey, dance’ whenever someone is wishing me to perform something, particularly if it is a derogatory activity. I was wondering where this phrase came from, and the best I can find is from a poem by Ernest Cline, entitled ‘Dance, Monkeys, Dance’. It is an interesting ‘slam’ poem.
