THE PARRODILE

(Photo credit: Malaysian Bikers at http://www.1malaysianbikers.com/)


What do you get if you cross a parrot with a crocodile? A parrodile! And if you don’t believe me, here’s the proof!

THE PARRODILE

How doth the little parrodile
Improve his feathered tail,
And pour the waters of the Nile
On every pea-green scale.

How bashfully he seems to cough,
How neatly spreads his claws,
Then chomps his owner's fingers off
With wide voracious jaws!

(with apologies to Lewis Carroll!)
