Rubber Chicken A devout Arab Muslim entered a black cab in London. He curtly asked the cabbie to turn off the radio because as decreed by his religious teaching, he must not listen to music because “in the time of the prophet there was no music, especially Western music which is the music of the infidel.”

The cab driver politely switched off the radio, stopped the cab and opened the door.

The Arab Muslim asked him, “What are you doing?”

The cabbie answered, “In the time of the prophet there were no taxis, so get out and wait for a camel!”

Moses Supposes is one of the most inspiring and classic tap dance routines of all time. It is danced by Gene Kelly and Donald O’Connor in the movie Singin’ in the Rain.

Brighten your day with this Anime tribute to Gene Kelly.

Not exactly the mash-up you’d expect, perhaps – but speaking as a long-time cinephile who has also been an advocate for anime for many years, I have to say it warms my heart.

A ghost princess comes upon Gene Kelly’s possessed dancing shoes, and the two get together for a little dance routine. It’s adorable, and if you’re into film history and the concept of geeks from vastly different generations recognizing each other, life-affirming.

That probably makes this sound overly important – but if the Doctor could bring fans together across time periods, I’d like to imagine he’d get them to make this.
