One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish Lines 118-142 Summary

A Bird in Your Ear's Worth Two in the Bush 

  • A creature asks his friend to look in his ear because he cannot hear (118-123).
  • It turns out there was a bird in his ear. Gosh, we hate it when that happens. But hey, it's gone now, so now his hearing's all clear.
  • Another creature tells his story, saying that his hat is old and his teeth are gold.
  • Oh, and one of his shoes is off but he has a bird that he likes to hold (128-142). TMI, creature. TMI.
