This is very creative story, but why does the chinchilla performing the breakdance cause shock waves?


Is the sentence correct?

The "shock waves" probably have to do with the audience's reaction.

Where's the story?

It's common to use 'breakdance' as both a noun, verb, and adjective. I would just say "Why does the chinchilla breakdancing cause shock waves" or better yet "Why does the breakdancing chinchilla cause shock waves?"

Also - what's the source of this sentence?

That doesn’t answer the question.
