A little joy in an unexpected place

Pushing my cart late this afternoon through a crowded WINCO (cheapest food prices ever), I eavesdropped shamelessly on the conversation between two produce guys. They were discussing The Jabberwocky. One knew a little, the other a lot (more than I did). His explanation included the word "denote" and a brilliant comparison to Snoop Dog's use of nonsense words.

I shouldn't have been surprised. Was I not once a grocery checker myself? And my "boxboy" was Isaac Shamsud-Din, a muralist whose work now hangs in several museums, but who at that time needed to eat.
