Mystery Science Theater 3000's Trace Beaulieu and Geek-a-Week
's Len Peralta have teamed up to produce a delightfully grody book of nasty children's poetry, called Silly Rhymes for Belligerent Children
. Beaulieu's poetry is firmly in the Shel Silverstein/Edward Gorey vein, and Peralta's icky drawings are the perfect companions to rhymes like,
Silly Rhymes for Belligerent Children
Timmy Davis contracted rabies,
from his unclean rodent babies.
Sammy Smith got a grim prognosis,
when his hamster gave him yersinosis.
Jeffy Conner, poor young fella,
an iguana gave him salmonella.
Tiffy's hamster had a germ,
now Tiffy has a new tape worm.
To Marky Spaniel it wasn't funny,
when he got tularemia from his Easter bunny.
A rare microbial infection,
came from Ian's fish collection.
Don't worry if your pet might bite,
just check it well for parasites.
