[I don't know where this came from, but I have to
pass it on. Previous sender omitted, he doesn't know either.]

The original author is David Moser; I originally saw it in one of
Douglas Hofstadter's old Metamagical Themas columns in Scientific
American (it's in ch. 2 of my anthology of those columns; no date
is given for any of the columns but credits for the illustrations
in that column give a copyright date of January 1982).
