    General Bonaparte holds a contest to see who comes closest to looking like his horse.

    Given that portrait painters always tried to make powerful people look more handsome, it says something that all the portraits of Bonaparte show him as pudgy and generally unattractive.

    Napoléon rode his white stallion / in front of a mighty battalion. / As he reached Amsterdam, / (leaving home his Madame), / the Dutch bribed him with a medallion.

    or … / Merengo was munching a scallion.

    or … / Bonaparte was at heart an Italian.

    The all-powerful leader of France / taught his trusty white stallion to prance / down the long crowded rows / of fat men in white hose, / that were also, somehow, tight white pants.

    Napoléon takes his right hand out of his vest just long enough to reach for the eponymous pastry being offered to him on a velvet cushion, (but he would have preferred a cheese danish).

    The President of Brazil/ put a codicil in his will:/ everyone gets a portion/ of his personal fortune/ which averages out to nil. /// Napoleon did the same/ but (to France’s eternal shame)/ no Brazilian got any/ (not a single French penny)/ though several placed a claim./// But what do you want from France ?/ They can’t spare a second glance/ for Brazil (it’s the pits !)/ what with Marianne’s tits/ exposed – and dead guys with no pants….

    When “Boney” rides into town/ the folks always give him a crown./ He’s the kind of a dude/if he’s in a good mood/ who might even not burn the place down.

    “Netherlandish” sounds so vague. Might be Dutch, might be Belgian. Somewhere around there.

    In the city of tight white pants/ a chubby chap hasn’t a chance/ but astride a white horse/ with an army (of course)/ he might get a second glance.

    Because his hemorrhoids were such a pain in the butt, Napolean required an extra cush for the tush.

    Actually, legend has it that on the morning of the Battle of Waterloo, Napolean’s hemorrhoids were so bad that he couldn’t sit on his horse to command his army.

    I’ve read that, given that people back in the 1800s or smaller than today, Napoleon was really not short in comparison

    It would add to his stature, indeed, / to be viewed seated high on his steed. / ‘Twas a long ride from France / by the seat of his pants, / and his hemorrhoids slowed down the speed. /// After Bonaparte had fled this scene / (to go visit a nearby latrine), / his pain cut like a knife, / so he put off his wife, / telling her, “Not tonight, Josephine.”
