October 21, 1858

On October 21, 1858, the Can-Can, a fast, highly suggestive dance with lots of leg kicks was performed for the first time in Paris, France. On a side note, on this same day in 1984, the Can’t-Can’t was performed for the last time in Bomont, Oklahoma by Shaw and Vi Moore.

If Rin Tin Tin did the Can Can, would it be the Rin Tin Tin Can Can? Share Twisted-History, if that image is now stuck in your head. You're welcome. This pun made possible by a grant from The Pun Council.
