Which Dali will we see when we dine at Dali's tonight?

This one in today's Zippy?

Or this one?

Or we will have llama tapas?

The one-l lama, he's a priest.
The two-l llama, he's a beast.
But I will bet
A silk pajama
There isn't any
Four-l llllama.

— Ogden Nash

Hello? No four-l llllamas? That's a big fire.

In the Nash collection where I first read that poem (probably 40 years ago!) there was a footnote that went something like this: The author's attention has been captured by a kind of conflagration known as a 'four-alarmer.' Pooh.
