God I love Scansion

Kudos to Sarah Hoyt (to whom English is a second language well mastered, or should that be mistressed?  She's a married woman. And a hellova writer) for the line on Instapundit Puppyblender:  


I'll take about 3 and one-seventh portions, myself.

And hold the "e".  I'll need that for my log tables.

Ah, math jokes.  I just kill myself. 

(Hi Dad!  Hope you liked the slide rule I picked up for you!)

(For the benefit of non-family readers, my father is a Shakespeare scholar - although a follower of the Oxford heresy - and a fan of mathematics.  HE got the joke about "e".  Nice guy, you should meet him.)
