And Popper, when pressed by Wittgenstein for an example of a moral rule, didn't 
say "Don't point pokers at visiting speakers!" He said, "Is that a poker in 
your hand, Ludwig, or are you just pleased to see me?"

The concluding chapter of "W's Poker" is a farrago btw since its surmise is not 
adequately justified by the contradictory material assembled
