[Milton-L] exam

The funniest piece of student "misspeaking" I ever encountered occurred in
a discussion of a piece of pictorial propaganda which bore the legend
"Oliver Cromwell's Cabinet Council Discovered." I was informed that it was
clearly intended "to appeal to the ordinary pheasant in the street," which
takes the prize for not only its instant surreal absurdity but also for the
way it contains several different kinds of wrongness which, firework-like,
arrive in the mind as a series of supplementary ignitions.

Best, Matt
