Queer!

“Quixote Quicksight.”

Quixote Quicksight, quiz’d a queerish quidbox,

A queerish quidbox Quixote Quicksight quizzed;

If Quixote Quicksight quiz’d a queerish quidbox,

Where’s the queerish quidbox Quixote Quicksight quiz’d?

Shave A Pig!

Illustration:  “Barber, Barber, Shave a Pig.”  Mother Goose’s Nursery Rhymes.  McLoughlin Brothers: New York. Ca 1900.

“Barber, Barber, Shave a Pig.”

Barber, barber, shave a pig;

How many hairs will make a wig?

“Four and twenty, that’s enough,”

Give the poor barber a pinch of snuff.

“Sneeze on Monday.”

Sneeze on Monday, sneeze for danger;

Sneeze on Tuesday, kiss a stranger;

Sneeze on Wednesday, receive a letter;

Sneeze on Thursday, something better;

Sneeze on Friday, expect sorrow;

Sneeze on Saturday, joy to-morrow.

Sweep The Cobwebs Off The Sky!

Illustration:  There was an old woman tossed up in a basket.  Mother Goose’s Nursery Rhymes.  McLoughlin Brothers: New York. Ca 1900.

There was an old woman tossed up in a basket,

Ninety times as high as the moon;

And where she was going, I couldn’t but ask her,

For in her hand she carried a broom.

“Old woman, old woman, old woman,” quoth I,

“Whither, O whither, O whither so high?”

“To sweep the cobwebs off the sky!”

“Shall I go with you? “Aye, by-and-by.”
