Note, this is not polymorphism in the standard OO (Object Oriented) sense. There, the identity of the specific subroutine is computed at runtime with a combination of the run-time-varying specific type, plus the statically known method call name.
Imagine this: in a dynamically typed language, you could pop off three stacks: object reference, message reference, arguments, mix them and call the result.
