What If The Hokey Pokey Really Is What It's All About? 

Amanda Tew
Secretary, Spartech Corp.

"I just thought that if that's what it's all about, then why am I working 40 hours a week and going to school every night when I should be "shakin' it all about'? I mean, somebody let me know if that's really what it's all about -- I'll quit trying so hard. I'll let loose a little."

Jamie Bielmann
Flight Attendant, TWA

"That's deep. I guess if that's really what it's all about, just find me a tall building -- I'll jump."

Steve Werner
Religious Studies, Webster University

"I'm not sure -- in between Kant and Hegel, the subject never came up -- but my guess is the Hokey Pokey is not what it's all about unless the meaning of your existence involves South Side wedding receptions in church basements that serve overcooked mostaccioli."

Trina Williams
Graduate Student/Rhodes Scholar, Washington University

"If the Hokey Pokey is what it's all about, then it's true -- you really do know all you need to know about life from kindergarten."

Holly Laws
Construction Closer, Commonwealth Land Title

"Well, then, I guess I'd better get my butt in and shake it all about."

Laura Hoyer
Office Administrator, Mobius Management Systems

"That's scary, because if that's the case, then I'm working too hard at life!"
