    Mary had a little lamb, a little pork, a little ham.
    Mary had a little lamb, and then she had some more.

    Or this one:
    When Mary had a little lamb, the doctors were surprised,
    But when Old MacDonald had a farm, they couldn’t believe their eyes!

    Mary had a little lamb
    Her daddy shot it dead
    And now she takes her lamb to school
    Between two slabs of bread

    Mary had a little lamb, this tale you’ve heard before.
    But did you know she passed her plate, and had a little more?

    Mary had a little sheep, and with the sheep she went to sleep.
    The sheep turned out to be a ram, Mary had a little lamb.

    or how about this one…

    Mary went to market once
    The price of meat didn’t please her
    She’s having leg of lamb tonight
    The rest is in the freezer

    Mary really had a poodle,
    standard sized, you see.
    She bathed the dog with too much bleach,
    the rest is history.

    I wish I could remember the name of the story by Saki (W.W. Jacobs). Husband was killed by a blunt object. Police couldn’t find the weapon. Wife thawed out a frozen leg of lamb, which was the main meal of the day. Of course, she got away with it.

    There was a Twilight Zone with that story. One of my favorites. She not only got away with it but invited the police for dinner. They all ate the murder weapon.

    That is the same story, which was adapted for the Twilight Zone. Saki, the author, wrote many stories with that peculiar twist.
