The Walrus Visits Queen Alice’s Banquet

In one of my early posts, “The Walrus Talks of Etsy,” I attempted to utilize a stanza from “The Walrus and the Carpenter” (Lewis Carroll, 1871) to support my conclusion that you can find just about anything you could possibly imagine on Etsy.  I would like to revisit that theory with a stanza from Queen Alice’s banquet song – the stanza from which Treacle and Ink got it’s name!

“Then fill up the glasses with treacle
