Some witty as well as snarky comments on the use and misuse of a certain native language. Indeed, you may chortle at a few of the author's opinions.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:
"Lewis Carroll gave a name ['You see, it's like a portmanteau ...'] to his coinages of two-in-one nonsense words ... Today, we recognize his chortle and snark -- the first apparently a blend of chuckle and snort, the second of snake and shark -- but have forgotten what he meant by mimsy (miserable and flimsy) and slithy (slimy and lithe)."
