Gonna Need to See Those Moves

Making the rounds on Facebook: the top 35 Onion stories that were mistaken for serious news by someone on Facebook. One of them (#3 “It is disgraceful”) is about how some absurdly high percentage of Americans don’t know all the dance moves to the national anthem. 

Someone railed on Facebook about how this was indicative of the decay of our national pride, a total disgrace, blah blah blah. I get that you can fall for a joke. I totally get feeling anxious about my country. What I don’t get is the implication that this person includes himself in the 15% of Americans that does know all the dance moves.

  1. I can't decide if it would be really entertaining or completely horrible to meet this person.

    1. I think it should be an internet meme, "We are the 15%" with video clips of the moves.
