I'd never heard this before -- it's one of those things that sounds like it could well be true -- but it could also be an "urban myth" type thing (anyone can say "this was previously reported in the newspaper")...

Just to throw a wrench (or spanner)in the works, there is some controversy about the Hokey Pokey: http://cantuar.blogspot.com/2008/12/hokey-pokey-is-anti-catholic.html "It was devised by Puritans to mock the priest's seemingly strange movements at the Holy Mass and the words of consecration: Hoc est enim corpus meum." Something I had been unaware of.

And on a slightly different note, a couple years ago I heard a comedian do a version of the Hokey Pokey as the Aussie band AC/DC. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&v=6izVyGgBC44&NR=1

How about this version of "twinkle twinkle little star"? Scintillate, scintillate, globule vivific, Fain would I fathom thy nature specific, Loftily poised in the ether capacious, Strongly resembling a gem carbonaceous! When torrid Phoebus removeth his presence, Ceasing to lamp us with fierce incandescense, Then you illumine the regions supernal, Scintillate, scintillate semper nocturnal. The traveller on lustreless perigrination, Gratefully hails your minute coruscation, He could not determine his journey’s direction, But for your bright scintillitating protection

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
