Ohh! The cut sublime! The cut infernal!

The cut sublime, is to admire the top of King’s College Chapel, or the beauty of the passing clouds, till (the obnoxious person you wish to avoid) is out of sight. The cut infernal, is to analyze the arrangement of your shoe-strings, for the same purpose.

(PS- I too was sorry that 'fan language' wasm't the other kind of fan.)
