In a post about beautiful words, AnnKath -at- aol -dot- com quoted a passage by Mark
Twain. It included the phrase:

>far in the empty sky a solitary esophagus slept upon motionless wing;

Personally, I've never seen a *solitary* esophagus. My neighbor has one,
and it always keeps company with either a uvula or a pyloric valve.
Perhaps the esophagus Twain saw was an antisocial type.
