unearths some literary gems.
From Max Smart and the Perilous Pellets, by William Johnston:
"Well, you know how we brilliant doctors are...a little absent-minded sometimes."
"Indeed I do," Dr. Medulla replied. "In fact, I practice absent-mindedness every morning for a half-hour. I hope to be a brilliant doctor myself someday."
"I can prove I'm the doctor," the man said. "Look--here is my little black bag!"
"But he has a little black bag, too," Dr. Medulla said, indicating Max.
"My little black bag is blacker than his little black bag!" the man raged.
"Yes," Max pointed out, "but my little black bag is littler than his little black bag."
