Coming soon to a wedding near you: twerking

Close your eyes for a moment and look into the future with me. It’s 2016 and you’re at a wedding. The effects of the open bar are beginning to loosen dance floor inhibitions, and the DJ is playing those songs that you thankfully only hear at weddings.

He’s played old standbys “Gangnam Style” and “Harlem Shake.” Then he takes to the mike and tells your Aunt Shirley that it’s time for the song she requested, Miley Cyrus’s “We Can’t Stop.” “C’mon Shirley!” the DJ calls. “It’s twerk time!”
