Sarah’s Response is a lot different than mine from the same AI:
We weren’t allowed to look up the word “PORULAN” so I did wait until afterwards. But… some very interesting bits and twists of history here.
Dutch author Cees Buddingh wrote a nonsense rhyme [The blue bill gargle] with fantasy creatures Porgel and Porulan.
Interestingly, many Jewish people in the Netherlands joined the resistance to Nazi Germany in groups called PP-Group– named after the fictional characters Porgel and Porulan. Read that history here: Porgel and Porulan in the Resistance.
And there you have it: fantasy and reality and resistance. History, Poetry, and Art.
