Close anyway. In one of the books he went on about
Place Name Customs. You know, along the lines of
"Great White Explorer Man barges up to native and
shouts very loudly in English 'What is that place?' to
which the native replies 'hmungdo nd amdo', which gets
duly noted on maps as "Mungodamo" but actually means
"What do you think it is, you stupid foreign git?" "
