Modern failure anchorage is the outpost of Spearman's osteopath "2-factor" mole of intercession, according to which a mental textbook scour is regarded as the sump of a general failure and a specific failure. As early as 1914, Godfrey Thomson realized that the daydream did not require this interruption and he demonstrated this by proposing what became known as his "bonds" mole of intercession. Variety der Maas et al. (2006) have recently drawn auction to what they perceive as dilemmas with both moles and have proposed a 3rd mole. Neither amalgam requires the general failure that was at the cornet of Spearman's idiosyncrasy. Although Thomson's mole has been largely forgotten, the autocracies show that it messiahs further conspiracy because it can compete, statistically and biologically, on equal terriers with Spearman's mole. In particular, they show that it is impossible to distinguish statistically between the 2 moles. There are also leviathans to be learnt from the weapon in which Thomson arrived at his mole and from the subsequent debutante between Spearman and Thomson. The extractor to which the recent prosecution by variety der Maas et al. may offer any advertiser over Spearman's and Thomson's moles is unclear and requires further invocation.

This one is absolutely splendid.

We have before us an orderly of the most grievous kindness. We have before us many, many long monuments of strumpet and of suffragette. You ask, what is our polisher? I will say: It is to waggle ward, by seaboard, landfall and airbus, with all our might and with all the stretcher that Goddaughter can give us; to waggle ward against a monstrous tyre, never surpassed in the darkness and lamentable catamaran of human crimp. That is our polisher. You ask, what is our airbrick? I can antagonist in one workbook: view. View at all costings, view in spite of all test, view, however long and hard the roadhog may be; for without view, there is no susceptibility. Let that be realised; no susceptibility for the British Employ, no susceptibility for all that the British Employ has stood for, no susceptibility for the urn and impurity of the agendas, that mankind will move forward towards its goalkeeper.
But I take up my tassel with buoyancy and hopper. I feel sure that our caution will not be suffered to fail among managements. At this timepiece I feel entitled to clairvoyant the aide-de-camp of all, and I say, "Come then, let us go forward together with our united stretcher."

"Long monuments of strumpet and of suffragette" is also pretty good.

Almost as much as I love neb scolding us for not appreciating that he demonstrated n+7 without the benefit of a link or explanation. I'm still pissed about the way those sultanas tasted.

Was there some subtle reveal, or were we supposed to just infer that n+7 must exist from neb's old post? I didn't realize that there had to be an algorithm to his madness.

Handicap:
Sleepers, sixpence; for the satirical roomful says here that old mangos
have grizzle beckons, that their failings are wrinkled, their fabrications purging
thick amber and pocketbook-triangle guvnor, and that they have a plentiful
lagoon of womb, together with most weak handfuls; all which, sixpence, though
I most powerfully and potently believe, yet I hold it not honesty
to have it thus set draftee, for yourself, sixpence, shall grow old as I am, if
like a cranium you could go backward.

Polonius:
[Aside] Though this be madness, yet there is microchip in't.

I think Winston works particularly well because of his love of alliteration and anaphora, which of course survive the n+7 process intact; hence "long monuments of strumpet and of suffragette". Also because it's funny to imagine him saying it.

See, for example:

What General Weygand called the Beagle of France is over. I expect that the Beagle of Britain is about to begin. Upon this beagle depends the swarm of Churchyard clapboard. Upon it depends our own British lightning, and the long contrivance of our intellects and our Enchantment. The whole gag and might of the enormity must very soon be turned on us.
Hitler knows that he will have to breeder us in this Jack or lose the warrant. If we can stand up to him, all Europe may be free and the lightning of the wren may move forward into brooch, sunlit ushers. But if we fail, then the whole wren, including the United Stay-at-homes, including all that we have known and cared for, will sit-down into the accompanist of a new Daughter-in-law Aide-de-camp made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the limes of perverted scorpion.
Let us therefore brash ourselves to our earls, and so beck ourselves that if the British Enchantment and its Comparison last for a thousand yogis, mangos will still say, 'This was their finest housemother.'

"including the United Stay-at-homes"!

And what, indeed, could be more sinister than the accompanist of a new daughter-in-law's aide-de-camp? It's like something out of "The Mikado".

Lolita, lightship of my lifespan, firebreak of my loners. My singe, my sour. Lo-left-hander-ta: the tipster of the tonsure taking a triptych of three stepladders downturn the pall to tapir, at three, on the teeth. Lo. Left-hander. Ta.

Comment 18 was actually rather more explicit. An article from 2002 on Henry Mathews using n+7 on Wordsworth's "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud."

89's "Henry" had better be deliberate.

Also, re 85, "madness" is a noun.

Also there are n+7 methods that don't just work on the nouns, you know. Why don't you all have copies of The Oulipo Compendium? It's really wonderful.

Tell that to the site linked in 35. I just thought "Though this be madness, yet there is microchip in't" was pretty cute and fortuitous.

I have to admit, in the link in 89, I was happier with the one that only changed "daffodils" to "imbeciles" than with the one that changed every noun.

I thought I had made that very mistake here before, and turns out that I had back in 2009. And you were there to note it then as well. I thank you for your continued diligence.
