in consequence of the missive, And as with many of these malapropisms..., penned by Arnie Perlstein
I loved your geometric representation of Fag's speeches, it certaily makes the play (complex) composition all the more lucid. And I agree with 'perpendicular' being a fine rolling word. Once, being fronted with a problem how to translate "because the higher he flies, the fewer" (a clot of deep thinking, this), I dodged with "because he is perpendicular", which was about as fitting in the context as Mrs. Malaprop's usage. We must be grateful to her (and her creator) for so many fine words turned into LOLs.
