I don't usually pass on news like this, but sometimes
we need to pause and remember what life is about.
There was a great loss recently in the entertainment world.

Larry LaPrise, the Detroit native who wrote the song
Hokey Kokey (Hokey Pokey), died last week at 83.

The most traumatic part for the family was getting
him in the coffin.

Apparently they put his left leg in . . . and things
just started to go downhill from there.

China Crash Again

China Blames U. S. for Second Mid-Air Collision
BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese officials have stated that they
are holding the United States, "fully responsible" for today's
mid-air collision, involving several Chinese aircraft and one
American craft. This comes just days after a similar incident
involving a U. S. spy plane.

Officials have stated that at approximately 8:25 a.m., GMT, a
squadron of Chinese F-8 fighters collided with the American
Goodyear Blimp. The crash left over a dozen Chinese planes
downed and the blimp's electronic billboard damaged. Sources
say the billboard's scrolling marquee had been advertising
7-UP soft drink, leaving the line "Up yours" in view.

A Chinese pilot who witnessed the collision between his
squadron, nicknamed, "Panda Rash" told China's Xinhua news
agency that he saw the American blimp dive out of the clouds
and into wingman Sum Yung Phukers F-8 jet.

"I told Yung Phuker his tail was all broken. Keep it
straight. Keep it straight'," said the pilot. "He just
couldn't shake the American foreign-devil. The blimp then
reportedly veered hard left and then right, taking out the rest
of the squadron.

Pilot Chawp Suey Wussy told Xinhua the American blimp "fully
responsible for the incident," repeating the language Beijing
has used in the earlier incident. China blames this new
accident on the Goodyear blimp, saying it rammed the
supersonic fighters, and has demanded an apology.

Officials from the Goodyear Company have said it is unlikely that the
slow propeller-driven blimp could turn inside and ram a dozen
nimble fighters, unless the Chinese were testing chimp pilots.

"The direct cause of the collision was that the American blimp
made a sudden big move toward the Chinese planes, making it
impossible for the Chinese planes to get out of the way," Suey
Wussy was quoted as saying.

"The savage act of American blimps colliding with Chinese
planes while conducting spying activities at sporting events
makes us indignant," he was quoted as saying.

Chinese officials are calling for an apology from the United
States and enough Goodyear tires to replace the Firestone's
that experienced spontaneous combustion last year. U. S.
officials expressed regret, but would not allow an apology
until the matter could be investigated further.

In a related story Goodyear has not commented on whether it
has stopped shipments of Large condoms labeled as Small to
China as a retaliatory measure.
