"""
Polymorphism happens and we can’t avoid it despite its silly sounding 
name.  We might have a baseclass which represents a basic document and 
we might subclass this generate ‘invoices’.  A different subclass might 
generate ‘cheques’. They may both have a method called print but the 
implementation of ‘print’ could be entirely different for the two base 
classes even though the same name ‘print’ is used in each case.  That’s 
polymorphism
