On the wonderful PBS Kids math show called "Odd Squad", there's a character named Obfusco, whose shtick is ostensibly that he speaks in "word problems" but whose main characteristic is really that he is always using similes and metaphors that are bizarre, opaque, or meaningless.

As I read Berlinski's first essay in this collection, I was reminded that he and Obfusco are blood brothers, and you have to be willing to overlook this quirk if you're going to get anything out of his writings.
