Snicker-snack and vorpal blade :

Vorpal clearly reads as oral and verbal, now french
morphology admits a pun shaped like :

(lambda x : death to x)^4 = death by the oral blade to amoral morals.

It's found in the phrase :

"Mettons ainsi par la lame orale la morale amorale à mort".

A very interesting phrase, this. Feels to me like Lewis Carroll
heard it first. Does anyone know how much french he mastered ?

What's-the-morality-of-a-Bandersnatch-?-ly yours,
