Shut up. You Know it's funny
Anita Sharpe on Life

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 who wrote 'The Hokey Pokey,' died peacefully at age
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.

(Thanks to Worthwhile friend Lee Wilder for passing this along.)

Larry LaPrise actually died in 1996. But the joke is still a great one!

As the t-shirt says...

What if the hokey-pokey IS what it's all about?
