Actually, the term "small world" was invented by my grandmother in 1952 in
Miami Beach as part of her research project into "Jewish Geography."

She ran into Mrs. Milgram from Philadelphia, discovered they had mizpuhke
in common and explained "It's a small world." Little Stanley was playing
in the sand nearby, overhead and plagarized. So did Disney World in their
abysmal song.

Perhaps Duncan visited Disney World.
