Lexical scoping

[ #10603 ]
Found in Gravity's Rainbow :

... an elegant menu including everything from Mille Feuilles à la Fondue de la Cervelle to La Surprise du Vésuve ...

OK. Tommy, this is not going to work. A Mille Feuilles à la Fondue de la Cervelle somehow implies that your recipe uses as main ingredient a girl whose brain leaked out of her ears. You need to remove the second la here. So cervelle is no longer lexically scoped to the outer fondue.
