treeseed commented on the word pig-wig
I think Lear was visiting the "bong tree" rather too often when he wrote this. But I love it.
January 27, 2008
Is this any relation to the "piggy-wig" of Edward Lear's famous Owl and the Pussycat? The one who supplied the wedding ring?
"They sailed away, for a year and a day,
To the land where the Bong-tree grows,
And there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood
With a ring at the end of his nose, his nose, his nose,
With a ring at the end of his nose.
"Dear Pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling your ring?"
Said the Piggy, "I will"
