    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 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.

    Anyway, may he RIP (found his story in Wikipedia and that he passed in '96, right?).

    Star we ARE from the same universe. This I am saving for the right moments. It is like having a whoopi cushion for all occations.

    I'm having a whoopie cushion installed in my own coffin before I go to the cadaver farm. Everytime someone gets close enought to hug me - OMG.....

    I am going to have that laughing cat that Suz put on here play everytime someone passes my coffin and I'm going to specifically ask the morturary to put a 1/2 grin on my face with just a little bit of my tongue sticking out.

    If you ever have real bad news to tell me, don't be shocked if I laugh when I'm supposed to cry. :)
