What if there is a selfish shellfish?
pterodactyl commented on the word billy the squid
Yup. He's a character in a children's song. It's a wonderful song -- not only does Billy "steal from the selfish and give to the shellfish", we also get to see him woo the beautiful mollusk Clammity Jane.Lyrics here.
I'm pretty sure this is a real fictional character.
