So I was looking up how to spell “curtsey” — like ya do — and encountered at the end of the “curtsey” Wikipedia article a little something called the “Texas Dip”:
The “Texas Dip” is an extreme curtsey performed by a Texan debutante when formally introduced at the International Debutante Ball in the Waldorf-Astoria. The young women slowly lower their forehead to the floor by crossing their ankles, then bending their knees and sinking. The escort’s hand is held during the dip. When the debutante’s head nears the floor, she turns her head sideways, averting the risk of soiling her dress with lipstick.
Okay, I gotta know. What does this look like? (Go to 0:50):
Holy cats. I am not disappointed.
And I fully agree with Lance that “Texas dip” needs to have a ribald definition. Quick! To urbandictionary.com!!
Call it antiquated, call it sexist, call it whatever you will, in some cases stuff like that is just cooler than penguin poo. I’ve seen ballerinas that couldn’t bend like that.
“Texas dip” shall henceforth be my new leering innuendo for fellatio. Which I will probably use never, but still.
That is extraordinary! Wowza!
