'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the wabe: All mimsy were the borogoves, And the mome raths outgrabe. "Beware the Jabberwock, my son! The jaws that bite, the claws that catch! Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun The frumious Bandersnatch!" He took his vorpal sword in hand: Long time the manxome foe he sought-So rested he by the Tumtum tree, And stood awhile in thought. And, as in uffish thought he stood, The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame, Came whiffling through the tulgey wood, And burbled as it came! One, two! One, two! And through and through The vorpal blade went snicker-snack! He left it dead, and with its head He went galumphing back. "And hast thou slain the Jabberwock? Come to my arm, my beamish boy! O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!" He chortled in his joy. 'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the wabe: All mimsy were the borogoves, And the mome raths outgrabe (Carroll, The Annotated Alice, 19197).

It was boiling under pressure, and the slimy and flexible badger-lizard-corkscrew things that live on cheese go round like a gyroscope and make holes in the side of a hill. The live mops were flimsy and miserable, and the green pigs that are lost bellow and whistle while snorting. Beware the dragon monster bird, my son! The jaws that bite and the claws that catch! Beware the desperate bird that lives in perpetual passion, and avoid the fuming, furious creature with snapping jaws that can extend its neck. He took his verbal gospel sword in hand: Long time the manly fearful enemy he sought so he rested by the type of tree, and stood awhile in thought. And, as in rufish and grufish thought he stood, the dragon monster bird, with eyes of flame, Came whiffling through the mean, thick, dark woods, and irregularly made bubbles as it came! One, two! One, two! And through and through the verbal gospel sword made noises like a large knife. He left it dead, and with its head, he went triumphantly galloping home. And have you slain the dragon monster bird? Come to my arm, my smiling boy! O fabulous and joyous day! O fabulous and joyous day! He chuckled and snorted. It was naturally being heated, and the slimy and flexible badger-lizard-corkscrew things that live on cheese go round like a gyroscope and make holes in the side of a hill. The live mops were flimsy and miserable, and the green pigs that are lost bellow and whistled while snorting. (Oliver, The Jabberwocky for dummies.)
