(Un)friendly Advice

Oh, the times!
When a friend you think knows better gives you a piece of advice. It looks really competent. So much so that you go ahead and implement it. Maybe it is that you are missing your desk keys, maybe you are making an investment, or even moving companies.
The "friend" can become an unnecessary nuisance in no time, leaving you regretting, alone, for taking the advice. You wonder back to that cursory moment of your own wisdom that told you not to listen to this friend. The Tom & Jerry equivalent of the Devil and Angel on your shoulder. To listen or not to listen.
Alas! The advice turns out to be a thorn in the flesh. It does get your work done but the repurcussions of it reveal themselves slowly through other means. Your colleagues tell you things, or your stock broker isn't happy or you came on board a sinking ship. Things happen, your regret becomes remorse.
So my friend, take this advice, with a pinch of salt of course, listen to your friends but do your own thing.

What is an M. C. hammer Slide?

I saw an XKCD cartoon talking about M. C. Hammer Slide.

Search for MC Hammer Slide shows an
Afghani soldier's image.
The same page also has xkcd cartoon.
The Newsweek screenshots has afghani soldier in three images and a different image on the fourth image.
Led me to Newsweek page on wikipedia.
There I find Fareed Zakaria involved in a secret meeting .
Leads me to Fareed's wikipage.
Realize he is an Indian Muslim.. and am proud..
Then Fareed confesses he is not religious guy.. turns me off.
He is named 21 people of 21st century or something by Esquire magazine.
So I search for the list.
The list is simply stupid turns me off much more.
Esquire is a pop magazine. Page three kind of stuff
In the end I start closing the firefox windows..
then I realize I haven't come to know what an M. C. Hammer Slide is.. :(
Can anyone help me find what an M. C. Hammer Slide is?
