Fact #143677


Short story:

A poem is published in The Tacoma Times, Washington State, USA, stating, "When you're in Walla Walla, friends, / You must not 'bunny hug' /Or 'turkey trot,' or likeas not, / They'll slam you in the jug; / And, girls, don't romp with 'Texas Tom'; / To do so's taking chances, / For the cops have put the kibosh on / Those naughty, naughty dances." The poem is a reference to legal action being taken over the popularity of 'animal' dances such as The Bunny Hug and Turkey Trot, usually performed to ragtime or jazz music.
