The PURPLE TURTLE is a magical beast. With one glance, it turns an ABBEY into an ALLEY, reduces a BULB to PULP, makes a VESSEL into a VASSAL, and converts a MUMMY to a PUPPY. By turning POMP into a BOMB, MONACO becomes a MENACE. And from TAMPA to TEMPE, it turns KODAK into SODAS. It's enough to give an ENGINE ANGINA.
