A lucky 13 jumped on stage and grabbed the mike to celebrate Eddie Murphy’s 58th birthday. Here’s, more or less, how the street performers, mimes, and hippies in Times Square would tell the tale.
Mosey to the Small Stage for COP
Split into two teams by counting 1-2-1-2-1-2…then, forget which team you are on. Do over. Each team member takes a turn to recount a moment, skit, or scene from Eddie Murphy’s career. PAX judges. If PAX approves, choose an exercise. If PAX (or Q) disapproves, 5 burpees for everyone.
Exercises were (roughly), all x10:
Mariah Carey’s (xEach leg)
Chuck Norris Merkins
Some other stuff
And a bunch of burpees
Mosey to side of the Carillon for Trading Places:
“I can see…and I have legs!” Both good qualities when running in the dark, so let’s Touch a Tree…partner up…
10 and 8…monkey humpers
6 and 4…Lt. Dans
2 fire hydrants
Mosey to the Amphitheatre for Beverly Hills Cop
Rosewood (Beverly Hills Cop) was always pulling out a bigger and bigger weapon, so let’s work on our guns.
5 incline merkins on each step
Staying in the Amphitheatre for Shrek
Partner up…partner 1 runs the Amphitheatre steps while partner 2 does Donkey Kicks (with some PAX adding Donkey noises)
Mosey Over the Stone Wall to the Grassy Knoll for The Nutty Professor
Time for the Klumps to work the abs…
Hello Dolly x30
Flutter Kicks x30
Reverse crunches x30
Q calls time, then uncalls time
Number-a-ma, Name-a-ram-a, Bodo’s volunteered (was volun-told) to take us out (well done).
Tonight: 5:30 p.m. Roller Coaster starting at Palani Drive (on Libbie across from Joe’s Market), followed by HumpDay Happy Hour (HDHH) at 6:15 p.m. House Party at TYAs after HDHH early until ??? Come early, stay late, and sign up for Uber.
Tomorrow: Shake off the HDHH with a new AO…The Forge at Huguenot High School. DTH has the Q. The World’s Largest Shovel Flag is scheduled to make an appearance along with the Ghost Flag.
Flatline likes to say,”Only those who post know.” Fair enough…so YHC will just say that Vinny sang and danced.
And, whoever was doing those donkey noises was a little too realistic.
