## Green's Theorem

**Green's Theorem** /prov./ [TMRC] For any story, in any group of
people there will be at least one person who has not heard the
story. A refinement of the theorem states that there will be
*exactly* one person (if there were more than one, it wouldn't
be as bad to re-tell the story). [The name of this theorem is a
play on a fundamental theorem in calculus. --ESR]
