Each month we choose a favorite quote--something fun or something to make you think. See the archive for quotes from previous months.

I have blacked the 1,000 eyes
Of a 1,000 angry GALES
Watch me knock the cockles off
The biggest blue-est WHALES
I have given walrus nightmares
Who thought that they were STRONG
I marooned a huge typho-o-o-on
On an island off Hong Kong
O ancient prawn-y green-ness
The never-ending SEA
Mess with squirmy jellyfish
But do not mess with me-e-e
O DO NOT MESS WITH ME!

           The Viking Song of Stoick the Vast from --Cressida Cowell, Hiccup the Seasick Viking (Orchard, 2000)
