Pigs have wings.

For some reason, this passage from Lewis Carroll’s poem popped into my head today…

From “The Walrus and the Carpenter”:

“The time has come,” the Walrus said,
“To talk of many things:
Of shoes–and ships–and sealing-wax–
Of cabbages–and kings–
And why the sea is boiling hot–
And whether pigs have wings.”

It’s one of my favorite Carroll passages, it always reminds me that taking things too seriously is seriously ridiculous.
