There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly...

"There was an old lady who swallowed a fly.
I don't know why she swallowed a fly.
Perhaps she'll die."

If you don't know this little ditty, check out this version by Simms Tayback.  It's a fun song though it does sound a bit morbid from that little phrase, doesn't it?

In my mind's eye I pictured a paper cut version of the old lady and wanted to cut it out.  I must say that this illustration looks absolutely nothing like what I see in my mind's eye.  Maybe I'll try again tomorrow. It is absolutely nuts how far away this is from what I indended.

I must say that I did thoroughly enjoy snipping it though.

P.S.  I was not the model for this one.
