Oopsy!  I oughta know that it's "Jaws" that bite; I ended up
memorizing all of Jabberwocky when my fortran programming class had
to write a general-purpose scanning program.  The file the prof gave
us to scan was "Jabberwocky."  Just being exposed to the poem for
days on end drummed it into my impressionable young mind.  (:

But I never memorized more of "The Walrus And The Carpenter" than the
first 2 lines (incorrectly).

Nice bicycle!  Uh, you oughta wear a helmet if you're gonna do acrobatics!
