That sound like a Dr. Seuss title

The Seal with an Eel Up It's Nose

I'm sorry to say
I'm sad to report
That I found a seal
In a terrible sort

The seals they do probe
They are looking for food
The eels try to escape
Ending up the seal's snood

The seals go back to the beach
Go up on the land
And begin to wheeze
Up on the sand

The problem you see,
Had by these seals
Are these things up their nose
These thing are small eels

Then the humans do see
That seal and his wheeze
They do want to help
The seal they will please

After a look, a real close exam
The eel was removed
by the Hawaiian Monk Seal Research Program

This latest nose eel was also removed,
With a “slow, steady pull.”
The seal was unharmed;
But at least the eel was all whole

The seal was released
Back out on the beach
But if you're an eel
No noses! We beseech




Footnote: "Hawaiian Monk Seal Research Program" just doesn't work in the meter of Seuss, but I did what I could.

I have to laugh. I thought the same thing, except I was thinking that everything after the ? in the URL is just for tracking purposes and could safely be removed shortening the URL by probably 75%. Not as tiny as tinyurl, though!

But I'm amused that we can have the same thought and come up with two completely different solutions!
