Now He Knows What It's Really All About?

My uncle just sent me this sad news of the passing of a cultural icon:

It seems 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.

Adds Uncle: Shut up. You know it's funny.

Larry LaPrise really did co-write the Hokey Pokey. He actually died several years ago at age 86, according to Google.
