I was watching newlywed game and one of the questions to the wives were what they depended in their husband for the most... The tree answers were cleaning, cleaning and laundry. Anyone find that funny besides me?
Cleaning and laundry- hahahahahahaha

I was looking up the pronunciation of Drogheda, Ireland

Which led to this poem.

There once was a man from Dún Laoghaire
Who pronounced an interesting theoghaire
that the language of Erse
Has a shortage of verse
as the spelling makes poets so weoghaire

Would you like to shake hands with Pope 1 or Pope 2 -

But when he's dumb and no more here,
Nineteen hundred years or near,
Clau-Clau-Claudius shall speak clear.

Dún Laoghaire is where the SSPX chapel near Dublin is located.
