The Whitaker Dance

So once upon a time, there were two Brads at LiveJournal: Brad Fitzpatrick ([livejournal.com profile] brad, [livejournal.com profile] bradfitz) and Brad Whitaker ([livejournal.com profile] whitaker).

Whitaker was the sort of guy who creeps into legendary status because his co-workers talk about him enough that people who never knew him learn of his legend and pass it on.

Whitaker is famous in the areas of LJ history that I am aware of for a) "Whitaker's Mom" and b) The Whitaker Dance.


Apparently The Whitaker Dance involved a lot of bouncing up and down and "pointing at your junk".

Though he never worked on LJ at all, so there wasn't confusion. :)
