    “Every time I hear that weasel tune, something inside me pops”-Curly Howard, when that was what drove him crazy, as opposed to mice, tassles, or wild hyacinth perfume.

    NEDDIE: “Sgt. Phtang, what’s up? Your boots have gone grey with worry!”
    SGT. PHTANG: “I was inside the thing, pickin’ up prehistoric fag-ends, when I spots a creature crawlin’ out the wall. It was a weasel. And suddenly, it went ‘POP’!”
    NEDDIE: “What a strange and horrible death!”

    [from: Quatermass O.B.E. Feb 2, 1959]

    Wasn’t that “the cobbler’s bench?” In Cockney slang a weasel was an overcoat and pop meant to pawn, which happened when the money went.

    Always make sure your weasels are properly inflated, and have them rotated yearly.

    Let’s see….the antidote for mice was cheese, (no, limbuggah), tassels meant feet being tickled, perfume, chin tickled.
    Methinks you and I watch stooges, too many.

    Why would a monkey care about poop? They throw it around all the time.
