The New and Improved DTH ShakeWeight Rain Dance



The NoToll gloom welcomed 15 feather-clad indigenous Richmond natives to a Rainmaking Pow Wow. The clock struck 0530 and YHC directed the PAX to each collect two Mother Earth shakeweights (bricks) from the DTH mobile. Here’s how those finely feathered gloom warriors danced a downpour into existence:

  • Now THAT was fun! YHC’s great white Silverado is getting some TLC in the shop (hence a scarcity on Caber fun recently), but the M’s 4-Runner worked just fine for hauling 4 score Mother Earth Shakeweights! Where’s Hardywood when you need him?! I was all ready to do provocative Shakeweight Dance for him… Favorite moment of the morning is catching Draper in the act of using his manhood to hold the bricks during a little AlGore-Brick-orama. “His penis has arms!” …?… Next time YHC is gonna have to come up with a “Aint got no thumbs” exercise (same idea as Lt Dans), since holding bricks for 45min apparently is a major thumb muscle burn. Thx to Doozie for being YHC’s timekeeper for the AM. Appreciate all you guys coming out in the warm rain to join me in this madness we live so much. SYITG!

  1. That sucked incredibly and was fun all at the same time. Thumbs, abs, shoulders – all toast, completely. Well done DTH. We will send you the bill for all the ligament replacement procedures needed after this workout.

  2. My bricks must’ve taken on some serious water during the downpour — they were feeling damn heavy by the end. I’m smoked like a peace pipe.

  3. Great ingenuity with the coupons, DTH! The Mary at the end was icing on the cake; was already spent at that point.

    Have a great eve, Gents!
