The Hokey Cokey is what it's all about

Hello! I hope you are getting in the swing for Christmas.  We have our tree up, but only one bauble on it so far, but, like Christmas, it is coming along.


Today is the last day to enter the not-your-normal-Christmas-giveaway.  I am amazed that more of you haven't entered, cos it is really cool!  Was it something I said, or didn't say? It really is not really all THAT big a plank. It just sounds cool to be sending a plank for Christmas. At 57cm x 10cm x 2cm (approx 22" x 4" x 1"), it is about the length of a pillow, the height of an iphone and the width of a good paperback.




Maybe you are not sure what the Hokey Cokey is.  It's a DANCE silly! One of those goofy party dances that you do when you hope no-one has a video camera. You remember, you put your right arm in, you take your right arm out, right arm in and you Shake It All About (that's the best bit), you do the Hokey Cokey and you turn around - THAT'S WHAT IS ALL ABOUT!
Some people will know it as the Hokey Pokey, and I remember it at the Hokey Tokey from primary school.  I wonder if it is subtley changed for children, as  "Hope he tokes me" isn't really a usable sentence...if you get my drift.


Anyhoo - get your entry in double quick cos it closes at midnight tonight BST.

  2. [/DELURK]In Canada (and in the U.S.), it's called the "Hokey Pokey", perhaps that's what confused people?[LURK]

  5. I'm not eligible, since for some unfathomable reason you don't want to ship across both an ocean and a continent to Los Angeles. :( However, I have to thank you for inspiring me to read all about the Hokey (P)Cokey, and for the belly laugh-out-loud LOLcat.
