"And pour the waters of the Nile, On every golden scale!"

"How doth the little crocodile
Improve his shining tail,
And pour the waters of the Nile
On every golden scale!

How cheerfully he seems to grin,
How neatly spreads his claws,
And welcomes little fishes in
With gently smiling jaws!" - Lewis Carroll


Except...it's not crocodile...it's stingray...and, it's not even real stingray...in fact, the only thing that created the correlation (in my mind, at least) between the two was the eau de nil (aka Nile water) coloring...and the fact that I'd welcome this little fish-e in with gently smiling jaws...if I thought there was even a vague chance that I could fit all of life's "necessities" into its rigidly unforgiving depths.
