[Haskell-cafe] (OT) Humorous definition for fixed points?

I was just reminded of one of the joke definitions of recursion:
"recursion: see recursion".

Perhaps there is a similar one for fixed points?
"To learn about fixed points find the fixed point of the process:
Given somebody learn about fixed points from them."

Course, my understanding of fixed points is poor and my jokes always
have poor delivery. So I'm sure somebody else can do better.
