LOL! And it's an obnoxious program that makes it impossible to go "back" where you came from AND it WON'T SHUT UP!
It's THE POLLY DANCE!
[yes, it made me chuckle!]

I posted the Hampster Dance about a month ago, referring to it as what our government is doing behind closed door sessions... see the real audio and visual coverage.
PJ, try it with your 2 year old. Mine sings and dances it all the time, without assistance from the internet! (That's in-between the "MOMMYMOMMMYMOMMYMOMMY" chant you so aptly described on another thread).

Be sure you use Internet Explorer, not Netscape to view Hamsterdance. Netscape will not play the music.

We have known about the hampster dance for a time now. Although I doubt Cory intended it to be misused and abused, I have found it very effective for getting reluctent teenagers out of bed at 6:30 in the morning. A few (or as many as it takes) repeats of this happy tune, is the best alarm clock I have found thus far. Also delights a two/three year olds to no end...
Have also used it effectively to send "non-pushy" y2k information to the DGI friends I have. We exchange jokes and such. Thanks Cory! :-)
I have no problem with Netscape 3.0 myself.

Couldn't help but compare it to the Fortune 500 executives doing a Y2K compliance dance!

OK, Sorry. Y'all can go ahead an' say it, I must live under a rock. I hadn't caught it before. My Mother in law just sent it to us and I HAD to share it ( now I find out - again)

umm- I don't get it. Can't hear any music and it doesn't look too funny. Maybe I just like lawyer jokes....
