Twinkle, Twinkle Little Duck - You Are So, So Out of Luck

A song my 4-year-old niece and her 7-year-old sister taught me yesterday.  It continues, "Up above the world so high, like a Beaver in the sky..."  I'm not sure it's correct and there may be more to it, but this is what the kids taught me and I'm staying with it.

Now you know which side they're on, in the Oregon rivalry between the Oregon State Beavers and the University of Oregon Ducks.  Vewy important!

I only have one other thought today, and it's a true engineering thought.  I can't get it out of my head since we saw the Grinch a few days ago.  You know all of those fantastical machines in the Dr Seuss stories?  Are there any groups of people making those or selling those?  Any college contests where two teams of students have to make a (whatever machine in some Dr Seuss story) and do a race or something?  It just seems like too good of a concept.  I did a brief search, but didn't find anything, and hopefully now that I've written the question down, I can forget it.  It's not worth the time to do any more research, unless I were a true geek.  And I'm not.  Really.
