A Bear Story

A S I was going up stin-dum-stair-um I met a high-gig-gle-y-bon-bear-um carrying off my fin-dum-fair-um; and I said, "I wish I had my gish-me-gair-um; I'd show that high-gig-gle-y-bon-bear-um how to carry off my fin-dum-fair-um!"


In plain English this nursery tale is as follows:

As I was going up stairs I met a bear carrying off my hog; and I said, "I wish I had my gun; I'd show that bear how to carry off my hog!"
