How on earth did that happen?

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

"Butterfly, eh?" thought the lazy cat, Krugfield, as he deigned to jump over the oblong puddle while the police dogs of Padukgrad were not so quick to cross over an imaginary line. "Smells like Tiger pee, which might be causing visions of my cousins, (which could have belted and flayed them) to dance and burn brightly in their heads. Still, as penned by Rudyard Keighnein, 'By the living dawg that made you, you're a better friend of man than I am, Rin Tin Tin.' It's time to feign madness -make them think they've caught the conscience of a philosopher king. That's it: Civilize 'em with a Krug. A time not for war, but for diplomacy by any means necessary -time to get out of here on little cat-feet or my own poor claw's wits. A time to 'start and snap at blackbirds bouncing by To fight and catch the great white butterfly.' Or perchance to dream of the spy novelist's poet, John Le Clare and his 'Hornet Moth' -
'The curious sphinx or moths of day
The curious only see
That gad--(nor wait the evening grey)
With butterfly & bee
One settled on this grassy blade
Betinged with yellow hue
& seemed in black & yellow shade
A hornet while it flew'
What was that Muhammed Ali McBeal said -'Float like a bee, sting like a butterfly'? Which maketh me think that I should go out and catch Rocky Balboa, the crusty beetle-browed boxer who has undergone metamorphosis to become the 'fightin' chitin', if not the 'great white butterfly.' Nope, it's getting late. I'll just stay home and watch that old sci-fi DVD of creatures great and small from the land of the crucified clause(not the 'crucified consciousness' so badly graded by Professor Butley). It's good night for Mothra."
