What words do you know?
Decades (yeep!) ago, I ran across a book of foolery in the University
of Michigan stacks. It had words that worked for Sellinger's Round.
I only remember the beginning:
The first catch was Sellenger's Round
The cow jumped over the moon
The goodwife shit in the piss pot
The cream ran over her shoon
I'll give you another as good as the other
If you'll be ruled by me
And then it got dirty. Anyone know *those* words?
