Marina Shifrin. Writer. Comedian. Waitress. Love it.

So you love your company, but your boss just doesn’t get it.

You make videos, and you long to make the content so compelling that people will watch in their millions.

But your boss just busts your ass to produce more and more product.

So after two years, you make your own video, resigning. To prove a point. That great content MATTERS. That it gets hits.

So then you post the video on YouTube, and you say this:

“I have put my entire life into this job, but my boss only cares about quantity, how fast we write and how many views each video gets.

I believe it’s more important to focus on the quality of the content. When you learn to improve this, the views will come. Here is a little video I made explaining my feelings.

Wanna deal with me? Hit me up.”

So you post an interpretive dance video. Why, of course! Why didn’t we think of that?

Funny. Clever. Original. Witty. Appropriate.

Her [insert abusive expletive] of a boss should have listened to her. The video is currently pushing three million hits on YouTube, and has been featured on leading websites and in newspapers everywhere. Dur.

And we suspect Ms Shifrin will be in work again very soon, if she isn’t already.

Oh, and she can bust a move, too. You go, grrrl.

This is one of the few photos Google can find of Cinthia with her clothes on. Oh, those crazy, wacky Argentines.

This is one of the few photos Google can find of Cinthia with her clothes on. Oh, those crazy, wacky Argentines, eh? We’d swap Las Malvinas for the Cinthia any old day. Oil schmoil.

This is – er – well, let’s just say, if Dancing With The Stars was like this everywhere, it would be the top rating show on TV.

As one Argentinian put it, “this is the worst show on our TV, but everyone watches it”.

As one US website opined:

You know how we feel about your secret viewing of Dancing with the Stars on TV. Just keep it to yourself and we’re all good.

But if we’re talking dancing shows down Sudamericana way, then we can chat about this shizz til our mamas tell us it’s time to come home, because they are making dancing shows most definitely watchable by men.

Apparently the young lady’s name is Cinthia Fernandez. Programs such as Bailando por un Sueno and other risque dance TV content continue to feature hotties stripping down to their oiled bodies beneath and pretending to shock the pretend judges all of whom are in on this wondrous conspiracy to turn dancing into a thing for guys.

The video is worth watching just for the look on the host’s face, which is priceless, as the two young people, you know, do their thang.

It’s art, I tell you. Sorta. Don’t say you haven’t been warned. Needless to say, Dear Reader, your faithful correspondent is shocked and appalled.
