There is a really funny silly bit of business from Lewis Carroll
about a mouse: not "Alice in Wonderland" and its dormouse,
but a house mouse.
because it is in Carroll's "Sylvie and Bruno" which is known to few people,
I expect nobody will recognize it.

The best known thing about "Sylvie and Bruno," I believe, is the
serial song/poem of The Mad Gardener. A series of limericks,
with the formula:

He thought he saw a *********
That *************
He looked again, and found it was
A **************
and at the end, two lines of commentary.
