No, you old geezer, you can’t dance like that:
The death of a father of three who collapsed while dancing to “Gangnam Style” has prompted a warning to middle-aged men not to attempt the vigorous dance from the hit video.
Eamonn Kilbride, 46, collapsed with chest pains at his office party in Blackburn last weekend after performing the dance moves made famous by the South Korean rapper Psy, who mimics riding a horse.
Professor Bernard Keavney, a consultant cardiologist at Newcastle University, has warned older men not to “stray outside your comfort zone” while dancing at their Christmas parties this year.
But will this advice be heeded?
I expect more men will heed that advice than men who pay attention to the “Ask your healthcare provider if your heart is healthy enough for you to have sexual activity” warning.
To say nothing of the infamous “four-hour” warning on various widely promoted wang pills. I can’t imagine anyone driving to the ER with Distended Boner Syndrome — unless, of course, he’s alone at the time. (Come to think of it, “Gangnam Style” runs only a hair over four minutes.)
