There was an old mommy who swallowed a...millipede

It started with the Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly.  Kal-El quickly realized that his bug collection had a fly and a spider in it that were much more realistic than the bean bag ones provided with the doll.  Soon, the Old Lady was swallowing much more realistic creepy-crawlies.

The next thing I know, Kal-El is coming toward me with a funny smile on his face singing "there was an old Mommy that swallowed a fly..." and he stuffed the fly down the front of my shirt (to get it in my "belly").  The fly was followed by the spider (of course).  Kal-El is unimpressed with the bean bag animals, he prefers the rubber bugs.  Next the "old Mommy" swallowed a millipede, a bumble bee, a cockroach (!), a dung beetle (!!), an many other icky things.  

Anyway, if you are looking for a creative way to work on nomenclature (just think of all those Toob Animals) and don't mind having a menagerie stuffed down the front of your shirt, this might be for you.
