Well, thank you very much for the correction, jheem. I have believed for over three decades now that Oscar Wilde did walk a lobster and it is very good to learn today that it was de Nerval instead. I wonder how affectionate a lobster may become.

You're welcome, Wordwind. OTOH, Oscar did do some funny things. I've been waiting on a friend who has the French original and its provenance. I'll post when I get it.
