Ghost Ride the Station Wagon

Every few years, a dance craze pops up that sweeps the nation. Hey, I vividly remember the Macarena, Cabbage Patch and Lambada - the Forbidden Dance.

Those are novelty dances. Like all novelties, they are great fun at first, and then they become annoying. However, one dance craze during the Snooze Button Generation's lifetime appears to transcend all the others. I'm talking about Ghost Riding the Whip.

Most likely, I will never "Ghost Ride the Whip," but I must admit to having fantasies of being on top of my station wagon with two children's car seats in the back and ghost riding that wagon.I have realized through casual conversations with friends, colleagues and random people in Trader Joe's that not everyone knows what it means to "Ghost Ride the Whip." Real quick, it means blasting the song "Ghost Ride It" by Mistah FAB while idling your car and dancing on the hood. Friends could dance along the idling car also, but that is not necessary. ... I love this stuff!

YouTube is a cornucopia of mishaps, kids looking goofy with their cars and, my personal favorite, a stolen car.
