Lewis Carroll wrote an apocryphal story-poem, The Hunting of the Snark. A hunting party searches for a Snark on an island where there is known to be one. The Snark is a magical beast—if you catch one it gives you everything you need and want. There’s a catch, to wit, the Boojum, also known to inhabit the same island. The Boojum is a magical beast as well-if you catch one you vanish forever. And, oh yes, the Boojum looks just like a Snark.
