Fun to stay

Turns out Felipe Rose, the American Indian guy in the Village People, really was an American Indian, and donated a gold single of "Y.M.C.A." to the National Museum of the American Indian (registration required; use BugMeNot if you want). This sentence cracks me up:

And the museum happily and ceremoniously accepted it (a Lakota prayer was sung first, then everyone danced to "Y.M.C.A.").

Fortunately, the museum had the sense to store the single in its cultural resources centre, rather than displaying it as a representative of American Indian culture.

Funny how a song about gay men cruising for anonymous sex became a massive pop hit.
