Physical fitness pioneer Jack LaLanne has died at the age of 96. Let us all stand proudly erect (but don't lock your knees) while the "Chicken Fat Song" is played.



The official title was the "Youth Fitness Song," and President Kennedy had recordings sent to every school in America so that it could be played over the public address system. Doing calisthenics to obnoxious music would build a strong nation that could defeat the Ruskies. Though its debut was actually a little before my time, people were still inflicting this song on children during my childhood.
