Cuncta Stricte Discosaurus

eschatological theropod moves

The ground shakes.

The mirror ball, seven metres overhead and the size of a comfy armchair, wobbles slightly out of time with the beat.

Your life flashes before your eyes because it is stroboscopically projected in primary colours on several different walls.

The tail is the secret. It is only by swinging the tail that the monstrous beast can achieve those smooth and swinging moves which identify disco as such. If we had to rely on the reaching of the little theropod arms, we might mistake it for rock'n'roll.

And it stops. Repeatedly, but always unexpectedly, the sound cuts out and an unanswerable, prescriptive moral asseveration emerges from the cavernous mouth. Then the music cuts back in.

       This is weird. And I suspect the title is rude.

       Someone in 2040 with a Nmrm Corp. Flex-O-Screen will be able to snigger briefly   

       While I'm here, do French people have rods/cones (?) in their eyes, as the "yellow jacket" protesters are wearing green jackets.

       Next, iambic pentametric rapping ...

       Really? I just use brown paper and be done with it.

       You get neater corners with iambic pentameters.

       So the beast of judgement is a disco dinosaur and it involves musical chairs ?

       Roy Castle once played a tubular steel chair like a trumpet on the BBC show "Record Breakers".

       Anyone can play a tubular steel chair like a trumpet. Playing one that's _not_ like a trumpet would be the challenge.
MaxwellBuchanan, Dec 02 2018
  

       Just out of interest, how exactly does a trumpet play a chair? Or indeed, anything?

       It learns the lines, then puts on the costume (and makeup if required) before going onstage when the cue comes.
