Poetry In Motion.

1. Watch it.
2. Seriously. Watch it. I'll know if you didn't. Fast-forward to 1:00 if you must.
3. If you're not impressed, we're breaking up.

I love good, wholesome entertainment from the 1940's.


And I now want to be a Ross sister. Scott would be so pleased. Ahem.

Bekah, if you can't break this one down, I will cut off your head. Love you.


Happy Weekend, everybody!

Well...

that gives new meaning to "bend over and kiss your own ass"


BWAHAHAHAHAHA!

Oh, sorry... you said "wholesome entertainment"

TheRightWife said...

Omg - where did you find this??

Jenny and the Princess Peonies said...

Holy Moley!!!!! It's like they don't have any bones!!! Wowzers....

Amy said...

Well, now I have a whole bunch of ideas for my next class!

That was some sick flexibility and amazing strength.
Pre- Cirque de Soliel.

Awesome.

CaraBee said...

I absolutely did not see that coming. I figured it was just going to be a fun 40s singing and dancing act. I have to confess that contortionists creep me out a little bit. It's like a car wreck, I can't stop watching but I don't really want to see it. When they were walking their legs around their bodies, yikes!

Becky said...

That was completely unnatural.

I think I'm kind of grossed out...in a can't stop watching/interesed way?

Heather said...

Scott and Joe will be so impressed when we do our Ross sisters' act this summer, as we then dive gracefully into the pool without even a splash...

Did I mention that I am the most UNflexible girl in the whole wide world? Can't even do a cartwheel.

That last part looked like an alien creature, made up of tanned limbs and cute hairdos.

Seriously, where do you find this stuff?!

Lauren W said...

Is nobody else completely in love with their shoes?!

Funky Kim said...

Lauren, I'm not in love with their shoes.

And my back will never be the same after watching that. Note to self: Make chiro appointment.

Christina said...

OMG! That is just freaky flexible...

and can someone tell me what they have to do with potato salad?

Elena said...

Good night, Lady! You need to warn a person...I was eating my breakfast! LOL!! "Scott will be pleased," you are a riot. And if I had even, 1/20th of the stomach muscles those ladies had, life would be a better place.

Melissa said...

And this was legal back then? My husband would love me.....!!!!!!!

Ashley said...

WOW!!! That's all I got. WOW!!

Brandy said...

That was just plain freaky. Even freaky deaky if you'd like...but certainly not normal.

Ouch.

ChicagoLady said...

That is just SO wrong! Oh My Gawd! I almost couldn't watch it. That was just sick.

Gina said...

That's It! My boys will NEVER be going into a barn with a girl who's last name is Ross- or who's mama's was.

THAT WAS SO WRONG and I laughed the whole time.

Bekah said...

Breaking it down:
If I were a dude, I'd want to lay those girls

The End

April said...

Lula.....my friend Emily is in serious need of prayers from your neck of the woods......thanks in advance!

Amy said...

Good Lord! At first glance, I was going to say that I wanted a flat stomach like all of 'em. But then after all that flipping, my back hurts too much to even think about my stomach anymore!

That was awesome!

Tony C said...

Wow...I want me some tater salad now.

I'm not sure if I should be incredibly turned on or scared out of my mind...

Swirl Girl said...

who knew they could make potato salad so entertaining!!

LOL!

Angie's Spot said...

Um, yeah. Where do you find this stuff?

And yes, I think husbands everywhere would be so please if we were all Ross sisters. My, my, my.

angie said...

I almost broke up with you during the first minute. But after that, the contortioning was crazy. Especially over that wagon thing. Can you imagine the abs that chick must have?

Jen said...

wow that was crazy. I didn't know that a persons body could bend that way.
so since I liked this video and totally thought it was cool can we be un-broken up now? I miss you and I want you back. ;)
If I must I will beg but please lets not have it come to that.

Kelly said...

Holy Begeezus!!!! That was a complete surprise at that 1 minute mark...I thought they were going to go into a tap routine or something...Some of it was freaky, but very amazing!

themoonisdown said...

OH.MY.GOD

what was i saying earlier about the olympics and pulleyes and trambolines and shiz?! GOOD LORD!!!

i love old movies like this.

ps do you think the camera dudes were totally uncomfortable after this ended. excuse me ill be in the loo

Marrdy said...

Cute video...please note that their belly buttons don't show...

Back in the day, belly buttons couldn't show.

Marrdy said...

No belly buttons....but I am sure every hubby would love us to be this!!

Shannon said...

Came back to show this vid to Shane... his repsonse:

"Why can't you do that?"



Oh, and the girls came running to see what we were watching... they thought this was HI-larioius!

Carrie said...

1. I have an outfit just like that, which I wore for hubby last night!

Pretty sure I was doing a few of those moves myself last night, ifyouknowutimean.

*snort*

Amy said...

My goodness - that was almost unnatural! Crazy!

Rhea said...

At first, I was just like, wow, they're singing about potato salad and kind of strange...and then they went all freaky contortionist, and I was like, HOLY CRAZP!

Sun said...

That is insane.

Live.Love.Eat said...

SO funny, my son is right here with me and said we saw this before. You posted this before, right? Now he is saying Grandma sent it to us. It is incredible what they do with their legs. Ouch.

Hope you're having a great weekend!!!!!!!!!!

Jen said...

Sorry, Lula. Totally unimpressed. My sisters and I used to do that act every weekend when we were kids. Except the three person cartwheel bit, now that was hard core.

Ok, seriously, if I had those moves, I'd be one wealthy woman!

Mama Dawg said...

Holy Schnikes, Batman. That was freakin' COOL!

Fritzie said...

Even if I was able, I would never do a cartwheel that requires me to stick my face that close to my sisters' tush-region.

Not even if you paid me big bucks.
Not.Happening.

think what they could do if they had a pole!
