The WHO resides in the head.
What I want to know by zippety zot

My Fortune, my Fame, the keys to my Cadillac for an hour over tea with a Know-it-all.
Peace? Perhaps an enema.
Who asked that question; who wants to know?
What exactly is the question?
Where were you when this question first occurred to you?
When did this first occur to you?
Why is this so important to you? (Never mind.)
How did you happen to develop this train of thought? (There, that wasn’t so difficult.)
Have you developed any theories in your quest for data?
Is there a point beyond which you will cease to wonder?
