Found in an email forward, great for declamation.

“This wight ventripotent was dining

Once at the Grocers’ Hall, and lining

With calipee and calipash

That tomb omnivorous — his paunch.”

Horace Smith; The Astronomical Alderman; 19th century.

(Calipee and calipash are parts of a turtle

beneath the lower and upper shields, respectively)
