Flannery O'Unicorn

Tonight a friend told me that Flannery O'Connor once said (I'll paraphrase madly) that her mother would name a dog "Spot" without irony and she (Flannery) would name her dog "Spot" with a full complement of knowing irony but in the end it would amount to exactly the same thing, which is JUST WHAT I HAVE SAID about unicorns.
