it's from a poem by william cowper about alexander selkirk, who is thought to have inspired the tale of robinson crusoe. i should really check these 'facts' but i think that is about right.

...go outside, catch a goat and skin it, then you can make a nice pair of socks, a hat and some mittens. Alexander Selkirk did just that (i'd imagine) - very toasty.
