What Seperates Us From The Rest Of The Animal Kingdom? Answer: The Moonwalk

When was the last time you saw an animal walk backwards? To my recollection, never. Apparently most animals can walk backwards but they don’t really do it, because they don’t have a reason to. Humans not only walk backwards, we also have the moonwalk. The moonwalk, the most decadent and totally frivolous physical maneuver. Sliding one foot back while putting pressure on your pointed front foot to give the illusion of gliding backwards. Talk about a move to stick it to the animal kingdom! It’s like were saying “Hey animals, with our tools we’ve managed to make so much extra time that doesn’t need to be spent getting food or shelter or copulating we can waste time gliding around backwards, because we can.”
