"Snark",
oil painting in progress.
Whimsical painting by Eric Hagstrom of a snark carrying a bathing machine.
     
snark1          

...
Its habit of getting up late you'll agree
That it carries to far when I say
That it frequently breakfasts at five-o'clock tea,
And dines on the following day.

The third is its slowness in taking a jest.
Should you happen to venture on one,
It will sigh like a thing that is deeply distressed:
And it always looks grave at a pun.

The fourth is its fondness for bathing-machines,
Which it constantly carries about,
And believes that it adds to the beauty of scenes-
A sentiment open to doubt.

-Lewis Carrol
