Remove the Bit About the Cod

Editor's note: The authors of this paper notified us that it had been rejected from another publication barring certain hard-to-meet demands.

Dear E,

That is outrageous!  How could they demand such a thing?  Oh, and
thank you for your submission to our prestigious Journal.  We are
planning on rejecting your piece.  Indeed we have rejected it.  But we also demand that you take the entire play "A Winter's Tale" by
Shakespeare and insert it willy-nilly and in random order into the text of your paper.  That will really improve things.  Also perhaps remove the part about the cod.  Who cares about cod?

Best regards,
