Be sure to read the definition of the verb form. And stop quibbling with a jest (ie "Hehe... rather amusing ..."). At least not with such a minimal and obvious post :-)

It was meant to be ironic since the double meaning of morph parallels the multiple meanings of polymorphism. IOW, it is polymorphism period not "dynamic polymorphism" that "OO is". All of static, dynamic, and dynamic implementation of static polymorphism are key concepts in OO. Uncle Bob the /mentor/ decided to declare only "dynamic polymorphism" "OO is" and that I found amusing.
