Unfortunately, there are people on this list who won't get that 
reference.  I didn't get it the first few times I heard it.  I had to 
have it explained to me.

For those people, please understand that this is a particularly dry 
form of humor, and the word "small" is used in more a cosmological 
sense -- as in, anything that exists on this planet is necessarily 
small when compared to the size of the entire Universe.
