Dab it, my boyonoceros!

Dabbing is a dance move that was first performed by Woody in "Lick Your Way to Freedom", and was a key plot point in "Fortunate Ben". When someone performs it, the person's face moves toward their left, as their two hands and arms point diagonally to the top-right. Characters without arms have also performed it by using their legs instead. It has been a point of controversy at one point in the BFDI fandom.
