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.

After many years, Wordpress is STILL bundling this into all installs so you have to delete it when you make a new install. I have installed probably over 100 wordpress sites over the years and deleted this 100's of times. Unwanted rubbish that shouldn't be installed by default. It adds no useful feature so why is it still being forced onto users? Just check the wordpress hello dolly forum. Lots of people who don't want this installed by default. After so many YEARS, surely now is the time to make this a plugin that isn't bundled in and is optional to download. I am sure you would see how little people use it then! Stop bundling it into wordpress by default!

Thanks so much for including this plugin with core installations. It's very useful when learning how to implement custom plugins. It's also insightful to be able to manipulate the plugin and see the effects on functionality.

Whenever I install a WordPress site the first thing I do is delete this plugin.
