Allusion is not Illusion

You'll pry my books off my cold, dead body. By the time you shift them all I'll be flat and dessicated.

Mole's in Love - David Bedford, Rosalind Beardshaw Spring, when a young mole's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love...

Or at least, pretty features. Mole does not seem to have any non-physical criteria for his new "love," and is too nearsighted to tell which species of animals he's macking on. Poor inept mole. At least he eventually gets some pity sex glasses.

Best of all, having this up on the screen results in Google showing me ads for "Stainless Steel Trapline Mole Traps". Probably not the effect the author was going for.
