>two two won one too

>> No.12551128

It’s also in 1984

>> No.12551165

Also used in the common translation (Cook's?) of On War, I think 4th book. I thought that was the reference seeing as the second post is the next part of the sentence "just as twice two does not make five"

>> No.12551200

I think it’s an Anglicism. George Orwell says it, as does Martin Amis, though Amis probably in the context of Nabokov.

>> No.12551602

I like it, nice and smooth.
