That book always puts me in a fit of giggling.

Speaking of old books ... our island's little library has a book sale every
month or so; they sell cheaply anything of which they have too many copies,
or which hasn't been checked out in a long time.  Last time, I got a first
edition (paperback, second printing) of the New Hacker's Dictionary for
US$1.00.  Just the trademark acknowledgements page is a real trip....
