"The first part depicts the Heroine’s toothache consequent to the loss of a very valuable watermelon, her dentistry and transportation to heaven, next follows an ellaborate exposition of the heavenly land in terms of Israel, Montreal, and the second part depicts the return to earth from being eaten by Max Müller in the day Edward the Seventh dedicated the Great Sewer of London" - Harry Smith
