Hello Dolly

Description

This is not just a plugin, it symbolizes 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.

Very Helpful Fluff

To all the people who hate the Hello Dolly plug-in . . . get some imagination. No, you may not have any use for HD lyrics on your admin page. However, I found it a great example of a very simple plugin with code that I could alter to add some functionality to my own web page. I’m not a programmer, but I can pretty much figure out what the code does. I just can’t write it from scratch. HD’s code is helping me learn how plugins and hooks work.

Remove it from WordPress

Please remove it from the core or include an option if people want to install it.
This plugin is useless, and many people I know prefer Joomla because it doesn’t pre-install anything.
Remove it alongside with Akismet from the core and then it will be better.
