Might be a dance but that's a pretty hefty haymaker she's throwing with her left! Lots of movement from this technique but it's well past your bedtime, Bill!!

That fellow in the checked shirt is a quick mover Bill but adds to the scene. The nice thing about the second curtain is you never actually know what the result will be.

C'est peut etre plutot une engeulade non? Ou un manoeuvre pas trop reussi?
Like the difference in mood beween the smiling women and the shouting bloke

I thought it was a punch up Bill.
It reminds me of when they hand out the karaoke sheet at the Dockers Club,
and they want to be first to put their name against the song,Crystal Chandeliers !!
