Man drops dead after doing Gangnam Style horse dance

Take that, Glenn Greenwald—PSY might not have droned some kid in Yemen, but he’s killed someone dead all the same:

The death of a father-of-three who collapsed while dancing to Gangnam Style has prompted a warning to middle-aged men not to attempt the vigorous dance from the hit video.

Eamonn Kilbride, 46, collapsed with chest pains at his office party in Blackburn last weekend after performing the dance moves made famous by the South Korean rapper Psy, who mimics riding a horse.

Professor Bernard Keavney, a consultant cardiologist at Newcastle University, has warned older men not to “stray outside your comfort zone” while dancing at their Christmas parties this year.

You’ve been warned.

    You need to do something about the avatar, Jang. It’s just not the same without the avatar.

    You missed the best quote from the cardiologist professor.

    “The chance that you’ll come to grief is very small. But as with any form of
    untypical exercise … be somewhat measured. Let the lady dance around you,” he
    told The Daily Telegraph.

    I always dance around men. Occasionally they don’t see me and trip over, it’s still dangerous.

    I’m guessing he wasn’t a marathon runner.

    How much did he weigh? Just curious.

    Why was I brought into this? Assuming Jang misspelled my screen name.
