        1) Your Body Is A Wonderland
        John Mayr's second single from his album is now playing on the radio. It
        doesn't have any real connection to Carroll other than the word "Wonderland"
        in the title, a word NOT coined by Carroll.

        2) *The Anatomy School* by Bernard MacLaverty (pp. 177-78)
        Two characters have the following conversation, recalling Mr. H. Dumpty:

        "To be a lame duck is fairly OK. Ducks fly. Ducks swim a lot. To be
        lame is only a minor irritation for a duck."
        "It's a term of speech, Foley. No matter what its origins are, it means
        to be seriously disadvantaged."
        "A king?"
        "In some departments. He was a born loser. People use words to mean
        what they want to mean."
        "If it was a hen, sir, it would work better. A lame hen."
