I sat next to the Duchess for tea.
It was just as I feared it would be:
     Her rumblings abdominal
     Were simply phenomenal
And everyone thought it was me.

This is why I preferred the ASCII-plus-Unicode-escapes design of the
previous registry: it couldn't be corrupted this way.

May the hair on your toes never fall out!       John Cowan
