The following inscription was discovered on an outhouse door somewhere on the northeast coast.
The codfish lays 10,000 eggs,
The hen she lays but one.
The codfish she makes ne'er a sound,
The hen cackles when she's done.
Now the lowly cod she gets no praise,
But our hen, she's such a prize,
Which only goes to show ya,
That it pays to advertise.
