Duck, Duck, Moose
My health with this brute has no chance
Though the fella's acute as most plants
When I got in a tussle
With the knot-headed muscle,
He said Velma "was cute as lace pants".
Jules Amthor sics Moose Malloy on Philip Marlowe: Otto Kruger, Mike Mazurki and Dick Powell in Murder My Sweet (Edward Dmytryk, 1944).
