Subject: 'Nother "nother"

While we're on "nother" and Lady Mondegreen, this comes from Judy, 5

September 1894, p. 118, col. 2:

Nonsense Names.

When Annie-Body kindly came

With Peter-Oleum's brother,

And asked me Amos-Quito's name

I answered "Oscar-Nother!"

Said Arthur-Moniter, at lunch,

"There's Evelyn-Potater,"

And Percy-Verance gave a punch

To Abraham-Bulator.

Now, Ewart-Urn has come to rise

And ask me, "Why, oh, why, sir!

These names do you thus analyze?"

"It's 'cos I'm Ann-Eliza."
