Popular Impression

Nobody asked but …

I am watching a vintage film of Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Mikado, and all of a sudden I encountered in the script the most wonderful exchange —

Nanki-Poo: Who says twenty-four hours make a day?
Pitti-Sing: There’s a popular impression to that effect.

What a wit W. S. Gilbert was!  This explains so much.  How many fictions must we burden ourselves with to get through the day?
