>OK, I'll ask:  What does it mean to rhyme with "vigour, rigour, tiger"??  Is the reference to Winnie the >Poo's (fake)feline companion?

First of all, it's "Pooh", not "Poo" (a universe which Disney is screwing up -- replacing Christopher Robin with a girl, of all things. And she runs around wearing a bicycle helmet.).

And second, whaddaya mean, "fake"?

The wonderful thing about tiggers
is tiggers are wonderful things.
Their tops are made out of rubber
their bottoms are made out of springs.

Paul Winchell was great.
