Comment:        RE: SHK 14.2294 Bottom, Weaving Metaphors, Language and
Reality

Not to critique this interesting discussion, but I've always imagined
that Bottom was a weaver of baskets, not cloth.  Just as a joiner would
be evaluated by how "Snug" his joints are, so too might a basket maker
be judged by the strength of his bottoms.
