Patron: "Barack Obama?... Isn't he from Illinois?"

Even funnier...

The Rock: "Yeah... ALOHA HARD!"

I'm still laughing.

Thanks for sharing.

That is hilarious. Can't believe I missed it!

What's funny and sad about this is how true it is. Hawaii is such a complex place--what isn't covered in the wedding brochures are the standoffs between the hawaiian sovereignty movement and the local police, the standard of living for most hawaiian's, etc. Anyway my people! I was really happy to see this piece--to crack the facade just a bit--and offer a wider, more corrective perspective through humor.

Just rewatching--hadn't seen that commercial with the fifties housewife morphing into the contemporary one! I'd love to hear your thoughts on that.

he does, doesn't he? and he really does those moves beautifully. he must have studied, or at least be so familiar culturally that he knows how to do them--gorgeous form.

The wonderful thing is, he could as easily be speaking about any tropical coast whose police forces can cordon off a large enough beach...

Your observance of his dancing led me to double-check Wikipedia...

"Johnson, the son of Ata (née Maivia) and professional wrestler "Soulman" Rocky Johnson, was born in Hayward, California. His maternal grandfather, "High Chief" Peter Maivia, was also a professional wrestler. His maternal grandmother, Leah Maivia, ran Polynesian Pacific Pro Wrestling from 1982 until 1988 following her husband's death, becoming one of wrestling's few female professional promoters. He is of half Black Canadian, half Samoan heritage (his father is Black Canadian, more specifically Black Nova Scotian, and his mother is Samoan). For a brief period, Johnson lived in Auckland, New Zealand, with his mother's family. During this time his mother Ata ensured Johnson was exposed to one of the urban Polynesian cultural strongholds of the Southern Hemisphere. Johnson attended Richmond Road Primary School before returning to the U.S. with his parents."

Quite a bit more worldly than his resume might otherwise indicate. Here's hoping he does more work like this...

The time management strategies explained here are perfect! I think if we follow the first point itself it can bring a lot of advantages. We should have a clear focus of everything we are going to do. Then things would automatically come well.

The risk of a cat spraying no more review spraying
increases if there are multiple felines in the home.
Luckily, he signed them over when the SWAT team arrived.
Also stuffing fresh mint leaves in the cracks where I find them coming in.
