or maybe Paltrow is riffing ironically off an old kids’ poem?:
by Gillette Burgess
The Goops they lick their fingers
And the Goops they lick their knives
They spill their froth on the tablecloth
Oh, they lead disgusting lives!
The Goops they talk while eating,
And loud and fast they chew;
And that is why I’m glad that I
Am not a Goop, are you?
