Can you can-can?
I beg your pardon?
Can you do the can-can?
Can I do what?
Can-can. A dance. Have you seen Orphée aux Enfers?
About orphans? Wasn’t it Les Misérables?
No, about Orpheus. A musical by Offenbach. Orpheus in the Underworld was the title.
And what about it?
There was a piece in it, called “Can-can Infernal”. You know, high kicks, skirts, and petticoats waving, pussy flashing. Can you do that?
No, I can’t. Can you?
Can you can a can?
Yes, you can.
No, I mean you. Can you can a can?
Why shouldn’t I?
But can you can a can as a canner can can a can?
No, I cunt.
No, you cunt.
It was the galop.
The galop. Not the can-can.
What do you mean? Where?
And it was not a musical. It was an operetta.
Orphée aux Enfers.
And the piece was called “Galop Infernal” by Offenbach.
Yes, the galop. Not the can-can.
