Abstract

When I was about ten I read in an anthology of misprints and schoolboy howlers the line "Water is made of two gins, oxygin and hydrigin. Oxygin is pure gin; hydrigin is gin and water". Even at ten I could work out that this said only that water was made of gin and I was left puzzled by the fact that this gave no means of distinguishing between hydrigin and oxygin. It's a pity I didn't have Barwise and Moss handy. Modern ten-year-olds are luckier
