Germans say that lies have short legs.
Meaning, they don’t go very far. Does this make them bad dancers, too? Well, luckily this isn’t one of Jan’s problems, because he is an honest country boy with very long legs. And skilful hands; that keep everything in place and everyone on the dance floor. Which is pretty much exactly how he settles things. He strides forth upon this world and into the club. He knows what we require for late night delight when our day is done. His long arms reach out to us and present us with a fresh, artfully arranged bouquet of grade-A data; indeed, its circular wreath of splendour, set atop a tightly bound bushel of lows is what brings us back to life at the end of the day. Sleep when you’re dead.
