Bad Sir Brian Botany


Sir Brian had a battleaxe with great big knobs on. He went among the villagers and blipped them on the head.


– A. A. Milne, demonstrating with his poem Bad Sir Brian Botany how to excel at opening lines.

    I certainly would not like Sir Brian blipping me on the head. I could see a tongue twister being made out of that.

      Indeed it could. I’m not sure if the rest of Milne’s poem quite qualifies as a tongue twister, but it is indubitably charming. 🙂
