Clap Your Hands And Stomp Your Feet To The Bohlingaringding Beat!

Can you say that three times fast? Even one may give your tongue quite the blast. So what is a Bohlingaringding you ask? Are you sure you are up to the task?

Bohlingaringding's come in all shapes,
Some even look like grapes.
They are all rather odd.
So just give your head a nod.

Go with it!
Bohlingaringding's will be a hit.
But that is not the only class,
When they come out in mass.

Stuperhingalingdings join the fun.
Peeperingalinglings won't be out done.
Chipalingaringlings like to play.
Burgningalingdings will have their say.

That is just some of the ones,
That come out to shake their buns.
Joining in their yearly parade.
A sight that will surely never fade.

I guess they like Christmas time.
So they dance in their prime.
Now join the Bohlingaringding beat.
Clap your hands and stomp your feet.

The Bohlingaringding's think they are so cool. With ringing bells they surely think they rule. At least they will never be able to sneak up on you. Does that make it better at your zoo? I know their name is one big long mass. But that is so fun for my little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

  1. Like the illustrations to match! Otherwise had no idea what they were.

    Although I might be first to read your post today...

  3. On words kids love to twist their tongue
    Better than adults have sung
    The words are funny makes one giggle
    And you can't help but start to wiggle.

    Another book, Pat? Great idea. Just in time for Christmas.

  5. ha. yes i think they might be fun, and would make a rather simple toy for manufacturing to produce extra revenue for the book you'll surely wrote...little plastic (cant spell their names) is no joke...

      My thoughts exactly little toys for kids to play with or perhaps make plastic finger puppets. Funny, we thought the same thing. Pat perhaps you should look into this idea.

    2. I thought of that too
      Here at my zoo
      But has to be a hit
      Before toys are made of it

  6. Endless possibilities with the varied ling-lings
    Coupled with a book they make great playthings
    Introductions are timely
    Christmas comes early
    Sure herald for a great future with such many things

  7. Congrats on another awesome book! Looks like a great (and easy) Christmas present for the nephew. Part of me thinks you just wanted the challenge of rhyming the most difficult word possible. "Yeah, I can make Bohlingaringding rhyme. Watch me."

  8. Congrats Pat on a new book at your mat
    this looks colorful and fun under your sun
    I think I recognize a few from your zoo
    perhaps a new Christmas promo to sell
    cat in a santa hat ringing a bell (buy my books)
    books are great gifts for those having a look
    Why not buy one or two for your nook
    or tell an elf you want one for your shelf ..

    Congrats Pat and his Rhyming Cat!

  14. My third graders would have had fun mimes
    imitating me saying "Bohlingaringding Beat" three times.
    I'd have been hearing them say it all day!
    Sometimes I miss those kiddos at my bay!

    I've just caught up again on your posts.
    I'm constantly amazed at you the most
    for making me laugh ~
    better than imbibing a carafe
    of wine ~ and at the crass to profound mixture
    of posts that have made you a fixture
    brightening my day
    at my bay.

    I have to stop rhyming ~ it's too hard!

    Having spent time with two different dentists in the past two weeks your torture piece had me cringing!

    And unfortunately I have so stepped on legos in socks ~ third grade classroom again.

    If the cat had attended my school, he could have taken part in cup stacking competitions! I hope somebody was catching those cups he was knocking off the table! Those videos are ridiculous, but they make me roll with laughter!

    Then you post something like "Tomorrow Is Found At Your Ground?" and it's as profound as some of Jim's (at Ocean Breezes) "Contemplative Monday" posts!
    The same message, but what different approaches!

    Hope you're having fun,
    under your sun!

      Getting caught up near and far
      Blabber would be jealous at my bar
      I go every which way
      With my rhyme play
      From crass to profound
      Even yapping about a hound
      Nothing will stop me
      As I rhyme free

  35. A new book and characters too,
    Lots of fun things are going on at your zoo.
    I've been searching for character names,
    But Bohlingaringding is simply insane,

    Sans spitting all over my breakfast tray.
