Yes, of course you're right.  I recognize the true Borgesque  quality, now
that you point it out.
Borge was a great favorite in my family when he first came to this country.
I seem to remember having a 78rpm Victor (!) record of his Red Ridinghood
(or Goldilocks?) routine with punctuation that I used to play on my wind up
Victrola in 1945.
