  SKZB might also have been riffing on Borges - this sort of referential
  play is typical of the latter's work, and the former's - I'm thinking
  of the joke about Rosenkranz and Guildenstern somewhere in Paarfi.
For completeness's sake, "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead" is a
Tom Stoppard play.

"Alan Alda's all we are."
