A friend sent this along to me, very funny:

From the Washingon Post Style Invitational contest that asks readers to
submit "instructions" for something (anything), written in the style of a
famous person. The winning entry was:

The Hokey Pokey (as written by Wm. Shakespeare)
O proud left foot, that ventures quick within
Then soon upon a backward journey lithe.
Anon, once more the gesture, then begin:
Command sinistral pedestal to writhe.
Commence thou then the fervid Hokey-Poke,
A mad gyration, hips in wanton swirl.
To spin! A wilde release from Heavens yoke.
Blessed dervish! Surely canst go, girl.
The Hoke, the poke -- banish now thy doubt
Verily, I say, 'tis what it's all about.
- Jeff Brechlin, Potomac Falls
