OK, the punk gets involved. Look, everybody had a punk or multiple of that in school. None of them would have gotten into a dance fight late at night with a teacher and by the way, none of our teachers would have been out there late at night in a dance off with a punk. Our punks would not be punk-like by singing and dancing, we would call them gay. Withstanding all that, none of us boys would have gotten involved anyway because dancing and singing is something only the nerd girls did. The cheerleaders and brainiacs would not have gotten into this. Maybe it is because this is New York and let's face it, it is a lib-tard part of the nation and this is just their way of being normal.
