    Thank You,reading in my new place no dictionary handy but ask a question was, so this is what I read: Where in this small-talking world can I find a longitude with no platitude?-Christopher Fry, The Lady's Not for Burning
    Isn't that called latitude or the parallels they girdle the globe from Equator to the poles in rings. The meridians of longitude go the other way, they loop North to South in great circles.

    It was a play on words - the humor stems from replacing latitude with platitude!
