One of my favorites is Job 38:36b, "Who gave the cock its wisdom?"
The NAB notes are equally amusing:  "Understanding:  the reflection of
divine Wisdom discernible in the created animal instincts of the cock."

			Nor wealth by the intelligent,
Me transmitte sursum,	Nor favor by the learned.
	Caledoni!		-- JPS Ecclesiastes 9:11
