Re: czech book



This subject heading puts me in mind of the czechoslovakian midget who had
made up his mind to escape to the West, slipping under the circus tent and
running pell mell for the Austrian border as fast as his little legs would
carry him, but hearing the dogs of the secret police hard on his heels and
realizing he wouldn't make it, so he ran up to a farmhouse, knocked on the
door with his little fist, and when the farmer came to the door, asked
(huffing and puffing), "Can you"--(huff puff)--"cache a small czech?"
