Etymology[edit]

T'was 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!
— Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, 1862-1863 [1]
