rusty on koans, but here's a stab at it

Joshu asked the Master, "What is the emacs magic to convert a word to all uppercase?"

The Master just looked blankly at Joshu, and Joshu was enlightened.

Re: M-c
M-c just capitalizes it; Joshu asked about making the entire word uppercase.

Re: M-c
my bad- it's M-u (meta-u)

the u is for upper

(M-l makes it all lowercase)

Re: M-c
Also, M-c and M-l don't complete the punchline.

Re: M-c
I see, said the blind man to his deaf son as he picked up his hammer and saw. I'm used to pronoucing M-u as 'Meta-u', so it took me awhile to pronoucing it differently.
