Nice! 

 

I am chagrined that you were able to work in Greene's greatest novel, especially after I spent no less than 45 seconds trying to come up with something myself. 

 

Can we surmise that you came up with this thread having after read Christopher Hitchens' autobiography?     If not, imagine he and his erudite pals engaging in late night, high level bathos while fully in the bag...
