JABBERWOCKY

'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!"

He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought—
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought.

And as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

"And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!"
He chortled in his joy.

'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

------------ from Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There (1871)

Enjoyed the illustration and words.The size was just right for those of us with challenged eyesight and smaller screens. Peace my friend.

The 1933 movie was great - I have it in my collection. Understand what you mean, though!

This illustration by Sir John Tenniel still creeps me out. I had nightmares as a child when I was first exposed to Lewis Carroll's books. Then as a kid I watched the 1933 movie starring Cary Grant, Gary Cooper, W. C. Fields, et al. I felt ill to see the characters fleshed out. It's no wonder that when people get out of their depth, their comfort zone, they say they've gone down the rabbit hole.

Nobody could match Tenniel's 'Alice' illustrations.
And I agree all the way with your puzzle size logic. Some people make a simple cartoon into a 500+ plus pieces puzzle, which most people will ignore. (This one is tricky enough in this size!).

You are welcome, @jerrys. I am getting more used to Jigidi and to the jigidi community. So I am putting more thought into my selections. Jabberwock, being B & W, would not be good split into many pieces. And I think memes, jokes, and cartoons are fine at about 12 or so pieces or else the humor gets bogged down in solving. And I am considering people's time and patience. Thanks for the input.
