    It's like that scene in Blackadder, where to his horror Blackadder discovers that Baldrick has accidentally burned the manuscript of Samuel Johnson's dictionary, and they have to rewrite it before Johnson returns to collect it.

    They start off with "A", and after a little discussion write the definition: "A small word, doesn't mean much". Then they try to work out what comes after "A". "A B.... A B.... Aha! An insect that goes buzz!" At this point, Blackadder realises that there are some words beginning with "AA", like "aardvark"...
