Maybe they were couples, I mean Boston has some morals right? Actually is pretty damn moral. Possess a married couple from screw like rabbits, hopefully they didn't cause an unexpected pregnancy.

...'possess a married couple from screw like rabbits'?... Where would you find these screw-like rabbits, may I ask, and why do they have custody over married couples?

Dunno, but we've got badgers covered:

Is this something you're quoting from, or just an exuberant moment of Jabberwocky-fueled enthusiasm?

It's based on this venerable old internet meme.

Although all things considered, maybe this is the more appropriate one.

I... see. Wow, those things just FLY right over my head - I'd never heard of that. (And I'd say the original is more Carrolian, myself - it has a mushroom.)

I was wondering whether someone would reference that... Anyway, those aren't 'badgers', they're 'toves'. They live under sundials and they eat cheese. I'm still looking out for the screw-like rabbits.

What an odd coincidence, I just found this, and you can understand my desire to share.

Albert should have done a quick re-read before he started in - he got some details wrong. It's 'mome raths', not 'nome raths', and 'borogoves', not 'burogoves' or 'borogaves'. Of course, this IS 'Pogo', so that was probably intentional on Kelly's part, but it's interesting that he only got those words right when the rest is letter-perfect.
Still, good stuff, yes. Let us hope and pray that Albert never discovers Shakespeare.

...'those words WRONG', I should have said.
