one, putting it (I think) on the back of the Lynx's neck.
On the old Sixties comedy show "Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In," they
sometimes used the phrase "you bet your sweet bippy," "bippy" being a
neologism the hosts sometimes used as a gag ("What's a bippy?"
"*That's* a bippy." Something like that.) As I recall, there was also
once a brand of powdered cleanser called Bippy.

This is not in Monoceros. This is in Canis Minor, just south of Eta
Canis Minoris (I think around the Little Dog's ears.)
I'm going to try and interpret this stuff in terms of last week's
current events later.
