1. Singer-songwriter-giclee artist Grace Slick of Jefferson Airplane, in her song “White Rabbit,” attributed the advice “feed your head” to the dormouse of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland.

    Or else she didn’t. Whether Slick really meant to put these words in the dormouse’s endangered little mouth is ultimately a question of punctuation, an arcane art probably never fully mastered by any singer-songwriter-giclee artist. Slick may have meant:

    Remember what the dormouse said:
    Feed your head.

    or she may have meant:

    Remember what the dormouse said.
    Feed your head.

    which is something else altogether.
