The Hokie Pokey Creator Dies

The Hokie Pokey Creator Dies

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 Hokie Pokey’ died peacefully at the age of 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.***


*** This is a joke. Every now-and-then, in the wonderful bunch of forwarded emails I receive, something worth saving comes along, and this was one of them.



  1. That is sooooo funny! I do that dance all of the time with a group of kiddos I work with. I’ll never be able to do it again without thinking of this joke!

    • Glad you liked it. I thought it was really funny the first time I read it. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
