Had a dispute with another lawyer in my office. He claimed it was Rikki Tikki Tembo who fell into the well. I was certain that he was mistaken. According to my best childhood recollection, it was in fact Eddie-Coochie-Cochie-Comma-Toasted-Here-And-Toastd-Okra-Sama-Kama-Walkie-Brown who “fell into the well, fell into the well, fell into the deep dark well.” So sure am I that little Lucy [whats-her-face] ran to get her mother’s help, but failed to get the name out fast enough such that “Eddie-Coochie-Cochie-Comma-Toasted-Here-And-Toasted-Okra-Sama-Kama-Walkie-Brown, DROWNED!!” Can someone please verify this Americanized version of the Chinese story about poor Rikki. And what the heck was Little Lucy’s last name anyway???!!!
