CONFUSIONS MASTERPIECE Long before motorboats and doughnuts were invented, the world was bothered by the apple. As the story goes, Adam and Eve partook of the forbidden fruit and suiferedieternal damnation-fatal applel Henceforth, all who tasted of the never-to-be-eaten green apple doubled up and became twinsl This was their punishment, and as a result, the rest of the world suffered. People hesitated to speak to all carbon copies for fear they were addressing the wrong party. Whenever the dittos went shopping and waited on lines, one was refused by an icy, haunting voice-"only one to a customer." The good citizens of the town were forced into con- fessing that they had just a "wee snort" whenever the double editions crawled by. The druggist prescribed aspirins and seltzers, but people still saw double, and the druggist, failing to mollify the situation, was exiled.

The town was becoming cadaverous. lVIultiply this drastic situation by thousands and what have you - a hopeless merry-go-round of con- fusion, strife, and depression. Then, out of the troubled sky, came a Hash of hope in the form of Noah VVebster. Taking his powerful pen into hand, he inserted the word "twin" into his dictionary.

Therefore, wishing to redeem them he interpolated his wide-read text and wrote: "twin-one of two persons or things related by ties of birthfl He never mentioned their sin, and, as a result, the ever-grateful, ever-increasing army erected a monument for the man who provided a refuge for them, who saved them from the flood of bewilderment. Thus it was that Noah's Ark came into existence. And now, centuries later, the world thrives happily, and has grown to love and accept twins-so much, in fact, that a certain Johnny Appleseed planted apple seeds in the hope of cultivating this one-time destructive apple. So the story goes. . . fShades of Gemini, what liesl J
