Growing out of the tufts of his hair.

So playful, so kind and well-bred;
And such beautiful eggs! You just boil them and then
They explode and they blow off your head.

And that gnormous and gnorrible Gnat
Whose sting when it stings you goes in at the knee
And comes out through the top of your hat.

We may die in an earthquake or tremor.
Or nastier still, we may even be tossed
On the horns of a furious Dilemma.

Let's go rolling and bowling and spinning until
We're away from old Spiker and Sponge!”

Uçak gökyüzünde patırtılar, gürültüler çıkararak hareket eder ve o kocaman bulut dağlarına gizlenmiş duran bir şeyler varsa, uçak gelirken koşup saklanırlar. İşte bu yüzden, uçakla yolculuk edenler hiçbir şey göremezler.”
