In Fleecestreet’s Greek in a Nutshell, Will Cheney once again assumes the character of Judge Jason Augustus Fleecestreet, the long-suffering scholar, classics teacher, and intellectual rival of Cheney’s other alter ego Brigadier General Cyclops Stonebone. The character of Fleecestreet originated in Cheney’s Pig Latin pamphlets and returned in Fleecestreet’s Improved Pig Latin Grammar (1963) to further criticize the shoddy scholarship of Gen. Stonebone.
