    When I was a grad student at Yale (in applied physics) I came up with a limerick:

    A professor of English at Yale
    Was fat and abnormally pale;
    He once did a pose
    Without any clothes
    And entitled it ‘Moby, a whale’.

    MattF: WAY lol. Thank you. Some of the photos of Bloom accompanying his obits are pretty amazing. Constant reading makes the self autonomous but otherwise, apparently, not very fit.
