LONDO:  Here.  6000 years of recorded history.  A history which includes
remarkable composers, astonishing symphonies!  But what is the one song
that half of them sing to their children, generation after generation?
                          [sings]
      You put your right hand in, you take your right hand out,
      You put your whole self in and you turn yourself about.
      You do the Hokey Pokey and you give a little shout.
      That's what it's all about.
                          [speaks]
It does not mean anything.  I've been studying it for seven days.  I had
the computer analyze it.  I swear to you:  it does not mean a thing!
     -- J. Michael Straczynski

You can get a very nice t-shirt with that message from an outfit called
Signals, which used to benefit NPR but has now been taken over by
Marshall Field.  I have one: my colleagues over 40 find it amusing,
those under 40 find it baffling.  I enjoy both responses.
