The Beast Must Diet

Don't get caught by his belt, half-man flunky
You'll have bought a new welt, Mr. Monkey.
When that whip goes KER-ACK!
It will rip up your back
Doc Laughton's not svelte, but he's spunky.

David Cairns

Charles Laughton is whip-cracking Doctor Moreau, with Bela Lugosi as the "Sayer of the Law," one of the many beast-men on the Island of Lost Souls (Erle C. Kenton; 1932).
