I am indebted to Andrew Solberg, HWRNMNBSOL, whose numerous and superlative 100-word posts to the Usenet newsgroup talk.bizarre originally inspired me to these pale imitations. There are, or were, other t.b'ers who are excellent practitioners, but I believe that he was responsible for its revival there in the 1990s. He tells me it's a Victorian form.
