by asides: why are there so many bleedin' spellings of 'chili', 'chile'!)

This puts me in mind of a song by Moxy Fruvous, a Canadian band Hi Bean! with the same sort of gift for wordplay as their countrymen, the Barenaked Ladies. In a MF song called "The Kids' Song", they intone:

My name is Gabby and I just got here from Chile,
I like Canada except that it is chilly,
I met Premier Bob Ray, and he ain't no Pinochet,
My mother makes a spicy bowl of chili!

Cheap rhymes. Always cracks me up.

I don't think I have posted this one before, apologies if I have.

When they catch a chinchilla in Chile
They shave off its beard wile-nile
With a sharp razor blade
Just to say that they've made
A Chilean chinchilla's chin chile
