Huh. THere is a Telephone Mythology, which is a more fanciful way of 
saying 'Chinese whispers' as an explanation for why cultures have similar 
myths (ie they get corrupted forms of myths off each other). And now, in 
this challenge, we are corrupting it further, so it did seem apt.

How many people would recognise a telephone as a telephone these days 
anyway? Kids these days, eh?
