What is a jive turkey?
In Urban Slang
Jive turkey was a derogatory slang word in African American Vernacular English, used to refer to someone who was unreliable, made empty promises, or who was full of bluster. The insult became widely known among white Americans in the 1970s, particularly via television comedies (e.g., The Jeffersons). The term has been used by later television characters (e.g., Homer Simpson) in order to demonstrate that they are out of touch with modern youth trends, culture, and language. Jive turkey, however, was already falling into disuse when it was spoken by supposedly "hip" characters in the 1970s, such as George Jefferson, and later in 2008 by Cornelius Banks (Tim Meadows) in the movie "Semi-Pro." The humorous/interesting sound of the term has also resulted in it being use in complimentary fashion, often by those who don't know what it means and so make up their own meaning. The term has also been translated to mean a white person who can dance. Turkey, being white meat, represents the white person. Jive is a form of dance.

It is right in the middle of the world connecting Europe and Asia. Answer Turkey is a bridge between Asia and Europe. It is surroundedby the Mediterranean Sea, Aegean Sea, Sea of Marmara and he BlackSea. Turkey also borders Greece, Bulgaria, Iran, Iraq, Syria,Armenia, Russia, and Georgia and the cap…ital of Turkey is Ankara, Turkey. Geographically, the border between Asia and Europe is theBosphorus, a strait of water that joins the Mediterranean Sea tothe Black Sea. This runs right through the city of Istanbul.Therefore, both Istanbul and the whole nation of Turkey are both inAsia and Europe. The majority is actually in Asia. But politically, Modern Turkey considers itself to be an activeEuropean Nation. It has applied for membership of the EuropeanUnion and is a member of NATO. It's football (soccer) team play inthe European qualifying of World Cup and European trophies. It is amember of UEFA. Turkey also takes part in the annual Eurovision song contest. Historically, Turkey is much more of an Asian country. It was partof the cradle of civilization where the first cities appeared (making it much like neighboring Iraq and Iran). It was known inantiquity as Asia Minor. But its colonization by the Ancient Greeksbrought it into the European sphere of influence. The establishmentof Byzantium (Constantinople, now Istanbul) as the second city ofthe Roman Empire made it very European. The capture of the city bythe Ottoman Empire (Asian Arabs) brought it back into Asia. The overthrow of greek invaders in the early 20th Century by thefollowers of Kemal Attaturk allowed Turkey to develop as anemerging democracy and has since, becoming increasingly allied toEurope.

If you're doing 1950's rock and roll jive rather than modern jive, I can help you :) Something cool, and fitting rather than loose or too clingy. I find that it's best to wear something that can be tucked in and with freedom of movement because you don't want your belly on show :P My favourite thi…ng to wear to jive in casually is a pair of fairly high waisted cropped jeans and a checked shirt, which i tuck in and wear a belt with. The loosely fitting shirt allows me to be cool but there's no excess fabric in the way to get caught on anything. So, tucking in, probably jeans and a loose shirt, and regarding shoes... if you're a guy then something like brothel creepers or even converse, and if you're a girl something with little grip on the sole and that's comfortable to jump around in! I wear women's black and white brogues, and find they're excellent for dancing in. (MORE)
