The Simpsons, "The Monkey Suit"

A stork was a large European bird, about half the size of a Bermuda Ern. Children who wanted to know where babies came from were sometimes told that they were brought by storks. People who told their children such a thing felt that their children were too young to think intelligently about wide-open beavers and all that.

"For as long as can be remembered, storks delivered babies. From their perch on Stork Mountain, it was an honor and a privilege to serve. It was our duty, our core belief, the driving force behind our very life blood. It wasn't always easy. This was our challenge. This was our sacred duty. No matter how tough or impossible or brutal or harsh or inhumane or savage, we would triumph over adversity.

"Thank goodness we don't do that anymore."

Look out for Mr. Stork, that persevering chap.
He'll come along and drop a bundle in your lap.
You may be poor or rich. It doesn't matter which;
Millionaires, they get theirs, like the butcher and the baker,

So, look out for Mr. Stork. And let me tell you, friend:
Don't try to get away; he'll find you in the end.
He'll spot you out in China, or he'll find you counting cork,
So, you'd better look out for Mr. Stork!

Look out for Mr. Stork. He's got you on his list.
And when he comes around, it's useless to resist.
Remember those quintuplets and the Woman in the Shoe?
Maybe he's got his eye on you.
Dumbo, "Look Out for Mr. Stork"
