"The Hokey Pokey"
« on: July 12, 2006, 05:16:10 PM »
Sad News

With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.

Shut up. You know it's funny.

Jody !  LOL ;D
I spent my formative years at the skating rink. Every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. There was nothing else to do in Walbridge.

tragic news.

over here, it's "The Hokey Kokey"
probably something to do with the Conservatives, or the EU, & wanting to discourage Poking of any description...
