ruzuzu commented on the word The Frogs
I am the very model of a modern Major-General.
I know our mythic history, King Arthur's and Sir Caradoc's;
I answer hard acrostics, I've a pretty taste for paradox,
I quote in elegiacs all the crimes of Heliogabalus,
In conics I can floor peculiarities parabolous;
I can tell undoubted Raphaels from Gerard Dows and Zoffanies,
I know the croaking chorus from The Frogs of Aristophanes!
- From "The Pirates of Penzance" by Gilbert and Sullivan

And, of course the croaking chorus from The Frogs of Aristophanes itself:
βρεκεκεκὲξ κοὰξ κοάξ,
βρεκεκεκὲξ κοὰξ κοάξ!
Brekekekex koax koax,
Brekekekex koax koax!
PossibleUnderscore commented on the word The Frogs
He was the very model of a Modern Surgeon General.
He doesn't get an army or a navy or an arsenal
There's no one who salutes him or who even keeps his coffee warm
He spends his day at work, attaching ribbons to his uniform.
-(I didn't make this up, but can't remember where I heard it either...)
