When The Dog Bites

Okay, so according to Maria from The Sound of Music, if a dog is attacking you and biting you, and you are in excruciating pain, and worried about rabies and diseases and possible amputation, there is a simple solution to alleviate some of the pain, and make things better.

Just think about something like whiskers on a kitten or packages tied with string.
That will make things all better.

So imagine:
A friend of mine is walking, turns the corner, and sees that a ferocious and vicious looking dog is biting me with a locked jaw, just above the knee. "Oh, no, Yossi!" my friend cries out in alarm. He looks at me, and is startled by the calm, if not enraptured look on my face.
"Don't worry, friend. Cream colored ponies... cream colored ponies."
