Peter,

I think you've quoted the wrong source. It was the Catepillar in
"Through The Looking Glass" who said that, not Humpty- Dumpty, (who said
very little after taking "a great fall").  I'm probably more familiar
with children's literature as my 2 grandaughters demand I read to them
every weekend.

Ken
