I recently encountered this greetings card.
An amusing variation on a well known couplet.

ha! Wendy, I'm not a gambling girl, but I'll stake my house on it!
I could go so far as to say Anthem will be sung at every concert here but I'll leave my house out of that last statement :)

I've always thought there was at least a glancing reference to trepanning in the lines.
The Ogre does what ogres can,
Deeds quite impossible for Man,
But one prize is beyond his reach:
The Ogre cannot master speech.
