Graceful, elegant and enchanting. None of these words will ever describe Anita Johnson. Awkward to watch, ridiculous, spastic and gloriously undignified, are all accurate descriptions of the full Anita Johnson experience. Her nerdlesque prowess and abnormal flailing will leave you cheering for more, while asking yourself these fundamental life questions: Did I just see that? How much therapy do I need now? Where's the bar?
