How to Dance Like A White Guy. Oh I laughed. I laughed a LOT.
Jean-François Gravelet (1824-1897) was a French acrobat known as “Blondin” who became famous for walking a tightrope strung high over Niagra Falls on numerous occasions. One time, he crossed the falls blindfolded. On another, he carried his terrified business manager on his back. Blondin’s most bizarre crossing had him carrying a small stove halfway across then cooking and eating an omelette there.
