Is this in reference to Lewis Carol. You mean to say here "`Just about as

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. I assume that's the quote you wanted,
in which case it does not apply. Or have you confused it with;

Of shoes -- and ships -- and sealing-wax --
Of cabbages -- and kings --
And why the sea is boiling hot --
And whether pigs have wings."
