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

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.
