Booktalking Fast Sam, Cool Clyde, and Stuff by Walter Dean Myers, 1975
Somehow he became known as "Stuff." Anyhow, one of the funniest things he ever observed was Cool Clyde, aka "Claudette" jiving with Fast Sam, who was "getting into his thing" on the dance floor in a competition. One by one, couples were asked to sit down by the announcer jovially saying, "Hey, hey. Let's give a big hand to..." and then he announced the couple's names. The pace of dancing would rise to a frenetic pace in the few seconds before the announcement, each couple throwing a few more daring moves in fervent hope that it would not be them to drop next. As the dance floor thinned out, Claudette, with her wig, and Fast Sam were giving the music a run for its money until there were only two couples left on the floor. Could Claudette retain her wig long enough to win?
