Larry LaPrise Dies, Leaves Legacy

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 that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin.

RIP, my friend.

Bigfoot Apathy

Despite reports of strange howling sounds and enormous footprints, nobody's filed an official application to hunt down a Bigfoot in Malaysia's forest reserve. Overly optimistic officials had printed up 500 permits, according to The Star Online.

Now, why wouldn't anyone want to capture a mythical creature, the existence of which was debunked about a decade ago?

Dead Politicians

Voters in the town of Bisbee, AZ stuck by their incumbent city councilman — even though he died nine days before the election.

Bob Kasun easily defeated Jeff Harris on Tuesday by a margin of 246 to 83. The 79-year-old four-term councilman died March 6 of lymphoma and renal failure.

Councilwoman Luche Giacomino, who survived a recall attempt, said she was happy to win but especially pleased that Kasun was not voted from office.

“I am just tickled to death that Bob won,” she said.

And so was Bob.

Cheney vows to shoot Iran in the face

Thus speaketh Dick Cheney: Iran will not be allowed to have nuclear weapons and faces “meaningful consequences” if it persists in defying the international community.

Said Cheney, "I'm the kinda guy who's not afraid to shoot someone in the face if I have to. Watch out Tehran: I AM a weapon of mass destruction."

George Bush commented, "That Dick: he's such a dick. The old dickster. The dickmeister. Dickey."

Bush Knew...Of Course He Knew

OK, so Bush knew about the potential effects of Katrina 4 days before the hurricane hit. And so what that he promised aid right after the hurrican hit. Who didn't know that he didn't know? Who's dumb? Seems that Americans and GWB has a dumb and dumber relationship.

Except, of course for myself and my best friends and my family. WE knew. But for those of you who voted for the moron (especially if you lived in New Orleans at the time), I say $%^$@##$%#%^^$@@#$#@$!!!!!
