Ok, so I was at Zouk last nite on the invite of my mate Benji, whom I hadn't seen in a few years. The night was not unlike any other clubbing nite (tho there was one supafyne South American chick infront of my table), except for 2 things. No, make that 6 things...
First up, there was this midget, in a flourescent green court jester costume no less, who starts shakin it on the podium. And he wasn't just quietly bopping his head to the beat, the dude was all out over-the-top dancing freaky style! In short (!), he was burnin up the floor. It didn't help matters when the DJ started spinning "Shorty Like Mine". Priceless!
You would think that was enough entertainment for one night. But no, if Mr Midget (MM)thought he had the spotlight firmly on his tiny frame, he had another thing comin. In fact, he had 5 things comin!
It hadn't been a few minutes since MM was doin his thang when in walked 5 white dudes in skin tight SpiderMan costumes. Not just skin-tight, these were the midriff baring version as well! The kind that would look hot on a chick, but not on a generously sized white guy. Or any generously sized guy, for that matter. And here we had 5 doses of it.
Now these guys weren't here to stand around and drink in a corner. No sooner had they stepped in when they were up on the podium, stealing MM's thunder like no thunder had ever been stolen before. And these guys had no pride to lose as they all wearing masks and could embarrass themselves shitless with no repercussions!
The highlight of the night would have been when the 5 Spideys were all dancing around little MM. The Mini Flourescent Green Goblin had been surrounded by the Amazing Spider-Men, with no escape...no hope...what was he to do...
So they danced. And danced. And danced some more. And posed for pictures. And picked up some chicks. Right up till the lights came up. For a while at least, the Mini Green Goblin and his eternal nemesis (+4) were happily inebriated, dancing like only old friends do - the cobwebs of hate and enmity torn away, even if only for a few hours.
Pretty fucking good entertainment it made, I'll say! The only downside is that I was really diggin this track called "World, Hold On (Children of the Sky)" by Bob Sinclair. But now everytime I listen to that song I only see the mental image of 5 SpiderMen with no rhythmm groovin with a midget!
