  3. She was made after the time of ribs and mud. By papal decree there were to be no more people born of the ground or from the marrow of bones.
  4. Lest details be mistaken for clues, note that Mr. Charles Unwin, lifetime resident of this city, rode his bicycle to work every day, even when it was raining. [Jedidiah Berry, The Manual of Detection — guessed by [ profile] xorphus]
