    “To begin with,” the Cat said, “a dog’s not mad. You grant that?”
    “I suppose so,” said Alice.
    “Well then,” the Cat went on, “you see a dog growls when it’s angry, and wags its tail when it’s pleased. Now I growl when I’m pleased, and wag my tail when I’m angry. Therefore I’m mad.”
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)
