Explanation:
this is, sort of fun rhyme, which is really impossible to translate.

It goes like is:

"Curiuos in a cone, open the lid and he will jump out"

In swedish there is a nice rhyme to this, I dont know whether there is an equivalent fun rhyme in english (it would certainly be formulated different from my translation ;-))
