Reader (following a Corner posting yesterday in which I used the word

“paradimethylaminobenzaldehyde”): “Everyone knows that’s the first bars of

’The Irish Washerwoman’ — in the original Gaelic.”

Derb: “Ah, another Asimov fan….”

Reader: “Not as much as I was *before* I read ‘I, Asimov,’ but hell… I

*do* think we should get some kind of ‘too geeky to be imagined’ prize.”

[Those who understand, will understand.]
