Saints Preserve Us!

A Laid-Back Law Ludicrous Limerick

An elderly bishop named Shannon,

While enacting a law about fanon

Said, “Wear them or not,”

“Sometimes it's too hot.”

Seems Shannon's law was a loose canon.



Apologies to Catholics everywhere. This one is also about the English language, but the reference is fairly subtle. (Think "homophones.") I had to search a while to find the perfect rhyme in the second line, but the vestment came to my rescue. Ya' might have to work to find the humor in this one. Thanks for stopping by!
