Y'See I didn't even see that as a typo - taking it as a poetic
contraction for "a size that only a cretin would consider sensible",
which made sense to me, but obviously now I could see how it could be
otherwise - a euphemism in the mould of "une femme d'un certain age"
would make sense too.
Human languages are much more fun than computer languages.
