However, after introducing Maeve to the depravities of the Rocky Horror Picture Show last night (bad Mommy), I really wish these lines had made the list:

It’s just a jump to the left,
And then a step to the right,
With your hands on your hips,
You bring your knees in tight,
But it’s the pelvic thrust,
That really drives you insane.
Let’s do the Time Warp again.
Let’s do the Time Warp again.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled workday.
