17. I am a member of the JabbaWockeeZ, a competitive dance crew.

We wear white masks and gloves when we dance. You may have seen us in that new Nike ad. We gained our fame on the show America's Got Talent before we won it all on MTV's America's Best Dance Crew, but people probably don't know that I'm the one who came up with the name for the group.

Actually, I thought it would be more clever to be the "JabberWalkies". I thought we could mumble to ourselves and make nonsense sounds while we danced, as a kind of homage to the absurdity of Carrol's poem.

But that turned out to be taken by a bluetooth earpiece company. Another guy in the group, my hommie J-DoG LaRotZ, previously of the dance team LeViATHanZ, came up with the new spelling and capitalization, which we all agreed was off the hizzle!
