the confusion lies in the concept of "rut" as a directional gouging of
the mud (that is, one's mental makeup ;-).  lisp's gouging is shallow or
deep depending on the softness of the mud, but more importantly, it is
expansive, so much so that it engulfs mere 1d ruts in its 2d nature.

you pour effort into other languages and pox-ridden sewer grot emerges,
you pour effort into lisp and the field of wildflowers grows.
