Sometimes the joy of music becomes too overwhelming to keep inside and you have no choice but to let it out onstage...in the form of an over-the-top dance.


According to Inside Edition, Marie Dallam was performing with the OK City Chorus in Oklahoma City when a particular number called on her to act a little bit silly:

"We didn't really practice. One of the women organizing asked me to ring the jingle bells and be as goofy as possible."

Little did that woman know that Dallam would come through with so much goofiness that a video of the performance quickly went viral!




Professor Gives Over-the-Top Performance at Choir Concert youtu.be

During the day, Dallam works as an associate professor of religious studies at the University of Oklahoma, but when the time came, she knew she had to find a different side of herself:

"In the moment, I was like, 'Be as goofy as possible'"

Mission accomplished, Marie.

"I think of myself as a serious person and shy in my normal life. Being a member of the OK City [Chorus], it allows me to indulge in my silly side."

Dallam isn't embarrassed at all by her viral status—for her, it's a badge of honor!

"I am not embarrassed, but it is certainly different from my normal persona."

Internet users were grateful Marie went all out for the occasion.

Many felt they had danced similarly before...

...but none had let loose quite to this degree!

Others were a bit afraid of Marie's crazy moves.

If only Dallam's choir-mates had also channeled her high spirits!

No matter her motivations, one thing is clear: Marie's awesome dance moves turned another hum-drum choral concert into the highest-energy extravaganza of the holiday season—well done, Ms. Dallam!

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
