Robert Degen, one of the writers of the Hokey Pokey, has died at the age of 104.
I have to wonder if he ever asked himself, “Is this what it’s all about?”

Wow. that is a good pic. Nice blog!
RIP – Robert Degen, 104. Next time you’re at a wedding putting your left leg in, out & in again, while shaking it all about, doing the Hokey Pokey & turning yourself around, thank Bob Degen. That’s what it’s all about…
RIP Robert Degan. Perhaps the manner and execution of “shaking it all about” is the vital ingredient. Everyone would be happier with a little more shaking, if done correctly. 😉
A true giant.
Like your blog.
I’ll be back to see what Craig Ferguson has been up to.
especially like your tardis, cool.
Very funny. Love it.
The theater group in my school has a tradition of doing the Hokey Pokey right before every show. This is tragic.
I’m really sad now…
