"I see it now," Alice
remarked thoughtfully: "and what are toves?
"well, `toves' are something like badgers -- they're something like lizards -- and they're something like corkscrews."
"They must be very curious creatures."
"They are that," said Humpty Dumpty: "also they make their nests under sun-dials -- also they live on cheese."
