Dear 100 Hour Board,

In the Baha Men's 2002 hit song "Move It Like This" the lyrics ask "Can anyone do the chocolate bumo like bakc in thte day." How does one do the 'chocolate bump' and where is it from?

-J Dizzle


Dear you,

According to Wikipedia, the bump was a dance style in the 1970s. This is consistent with the lyrics mentioning the twist and the electric slide, which are other classic dance moves. Since "chocolate" can sometimes allude to black people, it's possible that the lyrics refer to a style of dancing that was popular in black culture at some point, but I'm not really sure about that.
