	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
