Extract from "My Lost Dollar" by Stephen Leacock.
"If there are such men i want them to speak out. Not all at once: but in reasonable numbers, and as far as may be in alphabetical order, and i will immediately, write their names down on paper."
Why does the author wants the men to speak out in alphabetical order?



(actually he didn't write it as a question.)The author said that he want such men to speak out in alphabetical order not in a question mood but he meant it as a joke.(It doesn't seem funny to us,we will call it a chalu).He wrote that line purposefully as he thought we will laugh  but we didn't. It was actually meant to be a joke.I am sure this is the answer for i studied this chapter and my laughed at it and told the author had meant it as a joke.
