If I Ran the Zoo Rules and Order Quotes Page 2

How we cite the quotes(Stanza.Line)
Quote #1

In the Far Western part / Of south-east North Dakota / Lives a very fine animal / Called the Iota. (18.1-4)


Someone might tell you there is no Iota in North Dakota, but why follow their rules when you can follow McGrew's? He even has Iotas in South Carolina.

Quote #2

A zoo should have bugs, so I'll capture a Thwerll / Whose legs are snarled up in a terrible snarl. (21.1-2)


The Thwerll breaks all the rules of nature. Just look at that guy. We can't even fathom how he gets around. What does he eat (does he eat)?
