Baby's got blue eyes

This story about a cheese sandwich bearing the image of the Virgin Mary (looks more like Lillian Gish to me) reminded me of The Spanish Infanta's eyes.

Percy: My Lord...

Edmund: Yes, what is it?

Percy: You know, they do say that the Infanta's eyes are more beautiful than
������ the famous Stone of Galveston.

Edmund: Mm! ... What?

Percy: The famous Stone of Galveston, My Lord.

Edmund: And what's that, exactly?

Percy: Well, it's a famous blue stone, and it comes (points dramatically)
������ from Galveston.

Edmund: I see. And what about it?

Percy: Well, My Lord, the Infanta's eyes are bluer than it, for a start.

Edmund: I see. And have you ever seen this stone?

Percy: (nods) No, not as such, My Lord, but I know a couple of people who
������ have, and they say it's very very blue indeed.

Edmund: And have these people seen the Infanta's eyes?

Percy: No, I shouldn't think so, My Lord.

Edmund: And neither have you, presumably.

Percy: No, My Lord.

Edmund: So, what you're telling me, Percy, is that something you have never
������� seen is slightly less blue than something else you have never seen.
