Sad News - 02/08/02 04:34 PM

For you guys who know me personally, you know how hard it is for me to relay bad news. Unfortunately I feel it is my duty as a poster on this fine board.
I don't usually pass on sad news like this, but sometimes we need to pause and remember what life is all about. There was a great loss recently. Larry LaPrise, the Detroit native who wrote the song "Hokey Pokey," died last week at age 83.



It was extremely difficult for the family to keep him in the casket. They'd put his left leg in and .....well, you know the rest


Go ahead admit it! I gotcha!!!!

Thanks Zeke.

I knew Larry well. I also knew the lovely and gracious Peg, his one-legged wife. She used to really hop to it, before his philandering caused them to break it off.

Yup. True.

I think you guys are making a joke out of the LaPrise family's continuing misfortune. I personally find that shameless.

Yours in good taste and humility,
