“I come from a long line of conga dancers”

A dancer doing some genealogy might pun:

“I come from a long line of conga dancers.”

The joke was cited on Sickipedia in 2010 and was first cited on Twitter on March 28, 2010.


Wikipedia: Conga line
The conga line is a novelty dance that was derived from the Cuban carnival dance of the same name and became popular in the US in the 1930s and 1950s. The dancers form a long, processing line, which would usually turn into a circle. It has three shuffle steps on the beat, followed by a kick that is slightly ahead of the fourth beat. The conga, a term mistakenly believed to be derived from the African region of Congo, is both a lyrical and danceable genre, rooted in the music of carnival troupes or comparsas.

I say that as someone not cursed with two left feet - I come from a long line of conga dancers.
