“When what to my wondering eyes should appear, but 10 extra pounds on hips, thighs and rear”

The classic Christmas poem “A Visit from St. Nicholas” contains the lines:
 
“When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer.”

 
“When what to my wondering eyes should appear, but 10 extra pounds on hips, thighs and rear” is a jocular variation that has been printed on many images. “When what to my wondering eyes should appear, An extra 10 pounds on hips thighs and rear” was posted on Twitter by Rick Dees on December 9, 2012.

Some commentators now believe the poem was written by Henry Livingston Jr..
