    That is at the heart of the matter ... subjectivity and your perception as a graphic designer to (re)interpret and communicate.

    The math side of this issue I think is not your teacher's literal...

                  OK, I'll hit you with this:

                  According to Bart Bandy's Lexicon of Canadian Etymology (Don Mills, Ont., C. Farquharson, 1994), the term evolved from the French word canule around the time of the American Revolution, but its path of evolution is still not clear. Another possibility is that it rose from a mispronunciation among Benedict Arnold's forces as they laid siege to Quebec in the winter of 1776. According to Bandy, the comte de Theleme-Menteuse was one of the locals captured by the Americans. In his Contes bizarre d'Isle d'Orleans, the latter says that the Americans picked up the common phrase "Quelle canule", but they were usually shivering so hard when they said it that it came out with the "l" hardened into a guttural stop – thence a "k".

                              ...figures that he'd think about hockey first, he's probably wearing the Canadiens clown suit right now...
