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 83. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.
(Note: LaPrise actually died in 1996. This joke has been going around for a while. That’s what it’s all about!)
