"I was thinking if I were a fish, what kind would I be?" Put on the colorful leis and get out the ukulele and synthesized steel drums for the little fish with the big Hawaiian name: the Humuhumunukunukuapua'a (phonetically: hoo-moo-hoomoo-noo-koo-noo-koo-ah-poo-ah-ah). The humu humu, for short, is the unofficial state fish of Hawaii. Its name means "fish with a pig's snout" in Hawaiian, and is the longest name for a fish in that language. Your choir will have a blast singing the clever rhymes and catchy tune in authentic island style. From the pen of winning novelty writer Phyllis White comes a crowd-pleaser sure to get every underwater toe tapping!
