I saw a most peculiar man, all giggling with glee.
Sniffing at a petrel as it swam upon the sea.
"I love the smell of petrel," is all the fellow said.
I wish that there were more like him; that darling petrel head.

This was the text for a cartoon on the back page of today's Sydney 
Morning Herald. The picture was a man with a huge petrel head standing 
waist deep in the sea gazing lovingly at a petrel!
