Three cats decided to swim the English Channel
Setting off from Calais and hoping to land at Beachy Head
But I have a sad story to tell you
For I must report that all the cats are now dead
They entered the water at Calais
They were numbered one, two, three
But one thing they had not expected
Was how cold the waters of the Channel would be
They had practiced their swimming in warm water
Which was contained in a very large tank
When they entered the water they were shocked by its coldness
And as a result une, deux, trios catre cinq

  1. Even in 75 deg F water one can be overcome with hypothermia. The cats didn’t have a chance.


  2. How clever and darkly adorable!
