Stick

There’s an interesting piece on the Guardian books blog today about self-referential humour, triggered by a joke that turns out to be less lavatorial than one might expect. But it’s actually the comments that made me copy the link and post this. One of the commenters – freepoland – asks what the name is for a map that’s as big as the area it represents. 


This, spookily, quotes from a poem I wrote many years ago, which I’ll post here if anyone shows a jot of interest. (As if.) But the best thing is the answer, supplied by regular commenter BillyMills: Language.
