Gnomes: "Old Bill Batter, never fatter, vision can resolve this matter. Look you now and end this chatter!"
Bill Batter: "By all that's beauteous, fair and slightly
Four morons do I sleep with nightly!
There's nothing there at all I say!
Enough of this, let's now away!"
Gnomes: "Trilly Dilly, use your hands. Is it beast, or is it man?"
Trilly Dilly: "Be all you mad? What aileth thee?
A bunny can't trill merrily!
A hare does not at all taste sweet!
A rabbit here is all we greet."
Gnomes: "Taste, Grump-Frump, that we might know, whether friend or whether foe."
Grump-Frump: "Grump-Frump knows a tasty treat
It matters not what others bleat!
No danger is this one so sweet!"
Gnomes: "Listen! Hark you, Grovernor! Do your duty as you swore. With your ears, please tell us more."
Grovernor: "A nose is not a way to spy!
My ears cannot be told a lie
A nightingale is all there be
No man is near, and so say me!"
Gnomes: "Old Tom Trow, smell your smell. Do that which you do so well."
Tom Trow: "Tom Trow I am, that's all I'll be
My nose knows all on land and sea
A flower of stench has washed ashore
A flower, 'tis all, and nothing more"

There is nothing you can say of love that will make me cry, mortal. I have had Cleopatra and Helen of Troy stand before me, and they moved me not.King's Quest - VI: Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow, by Lord of the Dead

Two dulcimas raised to the degree of forty halfdulcimas, divided into equal parts by the third of a cackle of grouse geese, put over the result of ten finemackels (albeit small finemackels), stretched over the total of 53 and an eighth bottles of wildebeast lard....yields a gilded minnow of precise measurements; 269 centidrils by three million twenty-three punds (NOT punts, as might be expected). This is not to say, however any sense, whatsoever, that deviations in mean temperature of five or six dregs or so...indicate a fabrication or derivation sufficiently broad enough to exacerbate the conclusions uncovered, in due course, with regards to dimensions, consistency, mass or thickness inherent in the menial suckling grouse.King's Quest - VI: Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow, by Boring Book
