Hello Dolly

Description

This is not just a plugin, it symbolises the hope and enthusiasm of an entire generation summed up in two words sung most famously by Louis Armstrong: Hello, Dolly. When activated you will randomly see a lyric from Hello, Dolly in the upper right of your admin screen on every page.

Thanks to Sanjib Ahmad for the artwork.

Hello Dolly plugin is the Hello World! equivalent of WordPress. It doesn't do much, but it never claims to. It's there to give curious WordPress users a window into how a plugin works. You don't like it? It takes just a few seconds to get rid of. Nothing hurt. Nothing lost. No need to be nasty about it. It's become a part of WordPress culture now. Maybe one day they'll retire the good ol' Dolly, but I'll always remember her! And I'm sure you'll do too.

Those brave enough to develop plugins, are more than capable of finding a demo plugin. This plugin needs to be removed from the default installation.

I have been uninstalling this piece of (poop) from my WP installations since 2006... And that is about 60-70 uninstalls... Why??? Why do you keep on adding this useless plugin?
