on learn·ed·ness

Whenever the disýllabic
"learn·ed" is usèd in some way,
I picture Mr. Ed having
something significant to say.

He was always supersmarting
the wobbly Wilbers of this morld.
But wait, I hear a horse: "I am
Mr. Ed. It's not 'morld', it's 'world'."

prompted by (a comment to) On Neuhaus and Foundationalism (The Confabulum*)

* The Confabulum is a great font of learn·ed·ness.
