Something that good deserves to be passed on. Let's there any 
intersection between Friends Who Know French and Friends Who Like 
Puns?.  This is going to force me into a prolonged and probably 
fruitless Google search for an old college friend whom I haven't seen 
since we both got back from Africa (same continent, different sides) in 
the early 70's. At that time he and his wife were suffering from a 
surplus of kittens.....when they gave up on getting the last three from 
the last litter adopted he named them Surely, Goodness and Mercy.

Mathematicians are like Frenchmen; whatever you say to them they translate into their own language and forthwith it is something entirely different.
