I saw a bumper sticker the other day as I drove through the front gate that said, "What if the Hokie Pokie is really what it's all about." I'll assume you know the Hokie Pokie -- you remember the childhood song and dance that was really fun when you were five or six years old and never seemed to get old; then as a teenager it was just plain weird
