| And one by Sir William Schwenk Gilbert (of Bab Ballads and Gilbert and
| Sullivan fame):-
|
| There was a young man of St Bee
| Who was stung on the nose by a wasp:
| When they asked "Did it hurt?", he replied "Not at all,
| But at first I thought it was a Hornet".

I've heard it with a slightly different last line that scans better:
I'm just glad it wasn't a hornet.
