Cowses in trousers

This might sound a little silly, but I want you all to try and come up with similar 'animals in items of clothing' rhymes...

You aren't allowed one where the animal and the clothing is the same word (so no mules in mules or boxers in boxers).

So far, bunn and I thought of...

Cowses in trousers
Duckses in tuxes
Cats in hats - been done that one, as has...
Foxes in sockses
Ocelots in culottes
Siskins in bearskins
Rats in cravats (or spats)
Aye-ayes in bow-ties
Ants in pants
Doves in gloves
Tigers in togas
Llamas in pyjamas
Yaks in macs
Stoats in coats
Moles in stoals
Dippers in flippers
Kittens in mittens
Bugs in Uggs
Snails in tails
Frogs in clogs
Bees in tees
Baboons in loons
Bears in flares
Coots in suits (or boots)
Bats in hats
Bengals in overalls
Rabbits in habits
Geeses in fleeces
Eels in heels
Shrews in shoes
Toads in woad
Leeches in breeches
Owls in cowls

And my personal favourite:
Wombats in combats

What we need now is an illustrator, a publisher, a literary PR guy or girl and someone with influence over buying decisions for children's library books.

One out of four ain't bad.

I have a friend who is a good artist (glass blower by trade) and Bacchus is friends with the chap who owns the publishing company that does the WSET's books. It would probably help if the person who pitched the idea to him was female & pretty though (oh, and wearing something low-cut) ;-)

You can buy blocks of ISBN numbers from (I think) the British Library and set yourself up as a publisher. I don't know how much this costs though.

Just, you know, make sure you get the algorithm for calculating the last digit, which represents a check sum of the previous digits, correct.
