I remember not where I first heard this version of the Lady from Niger limerick but will give it in the original, then a weak contemporary parody that approximates DD.

Puella Regensis ridebat
Quam tigris in tergo vehebat.
Externa profecta
Interna revecta
Et risus cum tigre manebat.

There was a young lady from Niger
Who smiled as she rode on a tiger.
She left on the outside
Returned on the inside
With the smile on the face of the tiger.

Hodie

Puella Polani ridebat
Quam Princeps in tergo equitabat
Profecta iactata
Perfecta fatigata
Sed risus cum duce manebat.
