No fancy costume for Burnett. He walks in wearing jeans and a shirt. He’s a big man (J. Ninja looks like a kid beside him). With easy finesse, he whips out and dons shades, adjusts his muscles in fancy little ways, and slides to the floor in a one-leg, doubled-under split. The men strut together and form joint poses. When Burnett picks up a stool, inverts it, and places it on his head at a fetching slant, he becomes for a few seconds the most joyfully transformed lady at the Easter Parade and a model that could juice up any runway.
