From DR. BOLI’S ALPHABET OF OCCUPATIONS.

N is for the Navigator.
Ask him where we are. He knows.
“Possibly at the equator,
Land of the eternal snows;
Possibly in North Dakota,
Where the elephants roam free;
Possibly the Latin Quarter,
By the chilly Java Sea;
Possibly in Kampuchea
(Now known by the name ‘Myanmar’);
Possibly in North Korea;
Possibly in Zanzibar.
Let me make a small admission:
I was never trained to know
Geographical position.
I just know which way to go.”
