Author of Hokey Pokey Dies
With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world now, it is
worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which
almost went unnoticed last week. Larry LaPrise, 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.
It was then when the trouble started.
