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!

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.

Sometimes you just don't have any money and you have to make it work. I learned how to make the most out of bargains at the grocery store and know how to make food that is hearty and will last more than a day or two. Beans and rice are your friends, by the way. You'd be surprised by how many delicious meals you can make with just these two basic ingredients.

Now, this isn't going to be a long, "Let's all pile on how bad the internet is and only think about the good ol' days when the rocks were soft and we could only communicate using cans with string."

Look, unless you enjoy cooking, no one likes spending time in the kitchen longer than they have to in order to whip up something mediocre to eat.

We all like to assume that a big old scar has an amazing, hardcore story behind it: maybe a valiant fight or some life threatening-escape.
