Hooray! The U of M's new continuing-education catalog is out, and you know what that means: more inexplicable classes to marvel over and wonder at. The "Hip Hop" class, which the Pesky Fly first wrote about last year, returns with the same bizarre course description: "Having thrived within the African-American and Spanish-American subcultures in New York, it's just beginning to enjoy widespread exposure." But the absolute winner this time is a class titled Social & Party Dancing: "The band is playing your favorite song ... and you can't dance. At least, you don't want to dance 'your way' in front of your friends." Because, of course, we all know how embarrassing dancing "your way" can be.
