What is twerking?
Twerking (/tw?rk??/) is a type of dancing in which the dancer, usually a woman, shakes her hips in an up-and-down bouncing motion, causing the dancer's buttocks to shake, "wobble" and "jiggle". According to the Oxford Dictionary Online, to twerk is "to dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance".
The word twerking is of uncertain origin. Possibilities include a contraction of "footwork", or a portmanteau of twist and jerk.
That's what wiki tells me it is, so now I'm even more confused about what this audio might be.
Best exchange was when they asked me to name a single team in the past 40 years that did well despite bad chemistry. I named the 1970s A's and was getting ready to name the 77-78 Yankees when the host cut me off and said "last 30 years!"
When I first heard the term twerking, I thought that it somehow involved tweeting and something else.
I thought it was tweeting and working, since many people using the term on Twitter have jobs that require a social media presence. Then the Miley Cyrus thing with the foam finger clarified the matter.
