  • After feasting on fufluns and S'mores,

    Ruzuzu was craving some snores,

    Then along came GHibbs*,

    Gave her much-needed snores in the stores.

    OK, it needs some work; I'd be the first to admit it.

    *: 3rd person singular of the verb, to Ghibb, which - as best as our crack etymolinguistic detectives have been able to ascertain - seems to mean "to have a charming, if slightly baffling, obsession with verbs in the 3rd person"
