Peggy Goetz from IGWRT asks us this week to write on the subject "Going Outside"
Klein, a maths man, made a bottle
Made it with the outside inside
Made it with the inside outside
Made it with just one side only.
Folk said, "Klein, that's pure baloney.
Bottles all have two sides. Outside
where the milk is not. The inside
keeps the milk from off the table
Klein said "But my bottle's able
to keep milk in both "in" and "out" sides
'cos my bottle's got just one side" (*)
Strictly it's a 4-D bottle,
weird enough to make you throttle
Doctor Footsie! "Just get a grip!
His bottle's a 4-D Mobius Strip!"
(*) See picture. Skilled knitters can knit 'Klein Bottle' hats, which can be worn inside or outside, but not inside out, this being a condition that makes no sense to Klein Bottle fanatics.
