Statistically Improbable Phrases

Zed drew my attention to a feature on Amazon that lists "statistically improbable phrases" (SIPS) that occur in certain books. I have organized some selected SIPS that feature in works we have read in the workshop into haikus. See if you can identify which books the SIPS haikus belong to.

1. same landmark, same ship
feline tissue, china bits
old ontology

2. invented the zip
relevant sheep, tense judgment
immune to error

3. introduce their terms
purely auditory world
descriptions, cat slice
