     Wittgenstein, who because of his flip-flopping into the ennui of the "unutterable" is much maligned by the indentured, had in his repertoire the call "A picture is a fact."  Which is a long way from an idea of logic in language, and I would argue in a completely opposite direction to any sort of  mathematical charm.  So it is no wonder the defining of words is the work of sentences. 

     "If a lion could talk, we'd not understand him." A little too long for a bumper sticker, more likely an evening serenade from high in the Ornamentals. And there is always that picture of a lion that suggests he might think me his supper.  Interesting to find "The Biggest Loser" on the television is more popular with those to my right, and "Weeds" on the television is more popular with those to my left.
