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...

I remember when John C. Holmes died we were letting a lot of jokes fly in our office. One of our coworkers did not know who he was. I said "Lets just say when Rigor Mortis would set in they would have trouble closing the coffin." I guess I will have to watch for Ron Jeremy's Obit in the Irish Sports Page ;)
