 Ben Jonson once said...

--They write here one Cornelius--Son Hath made the Hollanders an invisible eel To swim the haven at Dunkirk, and sink all The shipping there. --But how is't done? --I'll show you, sir. It is automa, runs under water With a snug nose, and has a nimble tail Made like an auger, with which tail she wriggles Betwixt the costs of a ship and sinks it straight.
