>From an observant friend, Jim Pinkston, in Plantation Florida:

What 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 La Prise, 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.
