  There was a man who would marry his mother, and asked his

father for his mother's hand in marriage, and was told he could

not marry  his mother's hand because it was attached to all

the rest of mother, which was all married to his father; that

he'd have to love something else . . .



  And so he went into the world to love something else, and

fell in love with a dining room.

  He asked someone standing there, may I have this dining

room's hand in marriage?

  You may not, its hand is attached to all the rest of it,

which has all been promised to me in connubial alliance, said

someone standing there.

  Just because the dining room lives in your house doesn't

necessarily give you claim to its affections . . .

  Yes it does, for a dining room is always to be married to

the heir apparent in the line of succession; after father it's

my turn; and only if all mankind were destroyed could you

succeed any other to the hand of this dining room. You'll have

to love something else . . .



  And so the man who would marry his mother was again in the

world looking for something to love that was not already

loved . . .
