arising in seattle, wa during early june 2006, the allegorical nature of "mr. bojangles," star of many 1930s shirley temple films as well as subject for a protest song from the 1960s, alludes to the subconscious desire even the most free man has to give his pride away in order to dance a little bit.

to bojangle (v.): to dance about life with the same sadness and glib irony as bojangles himself did.
the allegory of bojangles was potent on the dance floor.
