And I believe that our American cousins call it the ‘hokey pokey’, which sounds considerably ruder than the British version.
Anyway, if all of this is drawing a blank for you, here’s Tom Wait’s doing a version in his own inimitable style.
Frankly I have never heard it sound so cool. It’s usually sung by drunk aunties at weddings well into the later part of the evening, just before the fights break out a the bar. Although I may simply have been scarred by too many Irish weddings to form a view on how more salubrious events occur.
But to the point: I saw this card while I was back in London in May, and it made me laugh like a drain. And then stop and consider, it’s meaning… what if the hokey cokey is what it’s all about?
That’s actually quite deep. Kinda.
This is part of Signage Sunday – and yes I am aware that this is a card, not a sign – but the whole ‘sign’ concept is fairly loose round here. And must I point out one more time, that it’s my blog and therefore I get to choose the sign? Good, glad you’re back on board.
So now we’ve got that cleared up, check out these other none-signs in the series:
