What Rhymes With Chennai?

A news story about floods in Chennai, India caught my eye, not the least because I was trying to remember what the name of the city was before it was changed to Chennai.

FYI--and mine--it's Madras.

And that reminded me of one of my favorite limericks (that was not written by me). It goes like this:
There was a young girl from Madras
Who had a magnificent ass.
It was not round and pink
As you may think
But was grey and had ears and ate grass.
Okay, so I was obviously much more immature when that one became a favorite.
