Halmos2If you think that your paper is vacuous,

Use the first-order functional calculus.

It then becomes logic,

And, as if by magic,

The obvious is hailed as miraculous.

Paul Halmos

  1. Miraculous as in transubstantion.

  2. Sorry –

  3. Here is the version I heard.🙂

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

    — Henry Kautz
