Logic Quote - Semantics and Mathematics

If your thesis is utterly vacuous
Use first-order predicate calculus.
With sufficient formality
The sheerist banality
Will be hailed by the critics: "Miraculous!"

If your thesis is quite indefensible
Reach for semantics intensional.
Your committee will stammer
Over Montague grammar
Not admitting it's incomprehensible.


Anon.
