Monday’s Twerk: Not Just a Made-up Word Anymore!


Do any of you guys remember a song called “Whistle While You Twurk”? I think it dropped when I was in middle school in the late ’90s, and a more, shall we say, “experienced” friend informed me that the strange neologism meant a certain sexual act I was definitely not supposed to know about. I dismissed it as made-up, but it turns the same term with a different spelling, “twerking,” is an actual dance style of some sort, which makes it a fitting name for Twerk at Rebel.

Twerk is a “crunk lesbian party,” so of course there will be stripper poles, booty clapping, and popping, locking, and dropping it. Also there will be $4 well drinks. But a word of caution: I still don’t fully understand twerking, so I need you to go to Twerk and report that. Could you do that for me?

Sarah M. Smart - Red-Light Special

Sarah M. Smart was summoned into being on a distant ice cream planet through an unholy union of Two-Buck Chuck and unicorns. They sent her to Indianapolis and then the University of Missouri's School of Journalism to spread peace and big hair. Perpetually in mourning for the comma, she has worked for a variety of print media, including Indianapolis Monthly, Global Journalist, and Vox. Since moving to San Francisco for the booming dumpster-diving scene, she has been an online operative for such fine folks as Horoscope.com , Neo-Factory, and Academy of Art University. After a day of cat-feeding, hat-making, dog-walking, vegan baking, and daydreaming about marrying rich, all she wants is a margarita as big as her face.
