Jehaesus Christ, man, if I'd remembered the specific I'd have
cited it. I just remember reading a letter to a magazine editor a few
years ago correcting such an error, and that was the excuse the
magazine gave. I think they even said "fuddy duddy" in the reply.
They sought it with thimbles, they sought it with care; From
They pursued it with forks and hope; The Hunting of the Snark:
They threatened its life with a railway-share; an Agony in Eight Fits
They charmed it with smiles and soap. by Lewis Carroll
