Animals and Other Things

The multi-talented musician Steve Beresford once told me that he knew a woman guitarist who named her chords after animals.
'So do I', I said.
Well, just two: B7 is obviously a camel because it's got a hump, and G a llama because it hasn't.
But then I investigated my mind and realised that all of them have symbols in my head apart from F which I don't tend to play very much as it's difficult, so F isn't anything.
D is a bucket and D7 is a hat; A is a table and C is a plank.
A minor and E are both airline seats.
And E minor is a pair of slippers.
