A dance designed to be danced by those who cannot dance, at family Christmas parties, while horribly drunk. Reminiscent of the hand jive. If you completely lack the ability to dance, which is the only possible excuse for dancing this dance, it may help to recite the maxim 'big fish...little fish...cardboard box' as you go along, to remind yourself of the moves. These are:

Preparation: Lean forward. Bend knees slightly, as if poised to run. Assume inane grin. When changing position, straighten knees and back in transit, causing the body to bob rhythmically.

Big fish: Hold hands in front of yourself at chest height, approximately shoulder width apart, fingers pointing forwards and palms facing one another, in a restrained version of the classic 'it was thiiiiiis big!' posture.

Little fish: Move the hands closer together, to about a distance of six inches.

Cardboard...: Hold hands parallel to body, one at chest height with the palm facing downwards and one six inches or so lower with the palm facing upwards.

...box: Resume the 'little fish' position.

Repeat ad infinitum, remembering to maintain at all times an expression of cheerful self-satisfaction at having Learned A Dance.
