Goose Pie

Allan Ramsay lived for some years in a fantastic house of an octagonal form, which he had built for himself on
the Castlehill of Edinburgh, and which he considered a perfect paragon of beauty. This house be was induced,
by his vanity, to show to Lord Elibank, who had both acuteness and wit; teliing his lordship, at the same time, that his friends said it resembled a goose-pie.

“Indeed, Allan,” replied his lordship readily, “now that I see you in it, I think the term is very properly applied.”
