Don't let yourself become a statistic!
So, Miley Cyrus may have made twerking look like all fun and games during her VMA performance, but don't be fooled: There are some real risks involved every time you pop that booty! I mean, we get it -- the "Wrecking Ball" singer is generally so flawless, you may not have realized that the twerking danger is real! Let's rap about safety, kids. *flips baseball cap around* *sits on chair backwards* *wonders if you think I'm cool and relatable*
...Ahem. Anyway, we're not talking some pearl-clutchy "moral fiber of our children" ish, we mean that actual physical harm could come to you, just as it did to the star of "Worst Twerk Fail EVER -- Girl Catches Fire!" video. Learn from her mistakes to avoid becoming a LOL-worthy viral sensation, and remember: Only you can prevent twerk fails. #TheMoreYouKnow #DoYourHomework #SmokersAreJokers #CheckYourselfBeforeYouWreckYourself #Recycle

1.) DON'T TWERK ON A DOOR: You must be able to rely on the stability of your twerking surface. Same goes for windows and lazy Susans.
2.) DON'T TWERK NEAR AN OPEN FLAME: The only "fi-yah" should be what's on the dance floor.
3.) COORDINATE TWERK TIME: If possible, try to schedule twerking with family, roommates, or anyone else you cohabitate with. Also, it doesn't hurt to have a spotter just in case you -- oh, I don't know -- fall backwards onto a glass coffee table and catch fire.
4.) DON'T YELL AT FIRE: Use water to put out a flame, not your words. We really shouldn't have to go over this.
