Cat Puts Left Paw In, Refuses to Shake It All About
In what’s already being called “PokeyGate” by the local press, a cat named Smithers stunned onlookers yesterday when he refused to follow instructions during a heated round of hokey pokey.
According to several reports, Smithers put his left paw in when instructed, but then flouted repeated requests to “shake it all about.”
"The rules exist for a reason," said hokey pokey expert Steve Randolph. "He made a mockery of game. There should be swift and severe penalties from the IHPB.”
The IHPB — or International Hokey Pokey Board — which governs professional play worldwide, has not yet reached a decision about any punishment for Smithers.
