Other lovely groupings Porter thought of were recently found in the original draft, which include:

  • Argentines without means / Boston beans
  • Chimpanzees in zoos / courageous Kangaroos
  • A very big turtle / a tortoise who’s infertile
  • The concept of money / a man covered in honey
  • Some rat from the gutter / some unsalted butter
  • A Dog with no legs / a big bag of eggs
  • A vile of venom / a cowboy in denim
  • A skeleton pelvis / the future ghost of fat Elvis
  • My weird Turkish lawyer / a guided missile destroyer
  • A shoplifting teen / a big swollen spleen
  • A silly rabbi / a chilly rabbi
  • A swanky young stud / a tub full of mud
  • A boy with no skin / a toy from Berlin
  • An ornery duck / a doll you can fuck
  • A songwriter named Cole / The young man who works at the shoe store down the street, I think his name is Henry
