Subject: RE: Folklore: the wampus cat
In much of the South, such as Geo' gia (Jo-ja), the letter R was not vocalized, hence 'ampus or wampus.
Lighter, when one wants to avoid a direct answer, one shifts the topic or changes it, as EBarnacle did. Perhaps that happened here.
(It is a much better song that that hog stuff posted by Susan. None of that diddle-dum, quilly quo stuff from someone with a defective memory or speech defect.)
