Thoreau Joke

“When we walk, we naturally go to the fields and woods; what would become of us if we walked only in a garden or a mall?” (from "Walking")

When I read this I had to chuckle--I know he meant mall as in public garden walkway type of thing, but I know he would have been even more mortified at the current meaning of the word and all it implies.
