I have a hunch yesterday was Quasimodo Sunday.
Thanks, folks! I’m here all week! Try the veal!
You so totally rock, Mark.
Hmm, now that I think about it, that does ring a bell…
The bell ya say!
Completely off topic. . .
Mark, I had a dream last night where you featured as one of the profs on my philosophical theology master’s thesis. Don’t ask me why. I dunno. There were four of us in a room, discussing my topic and you all gave me the go-ahead for the project.
So, thanks for approving my topic. Now, get out of my dreams, please!!!!
Fr. Philip Neri, OP
Am I the only one who totally doesn’t get it?
Perhaps not, but, so far, you’re the only one to admit it.
Quasimodo is the title character in the Victor Hugo novel “The Hunchback of Notre Dame. He is a bell ringer in the cathedral. He also appears in the sequence:
Does the name Quasimodo ring a bell?
Does the name Pavlov ring a bell?
Does the name Rhett Butler wrong a belle?
Ken, you’re not the only one, I’m still scratching my head! Marty, thanks for the explanation, but why Quasimodo Sunday? *feels stupid*
From the old introit for the Mass on this particular Sunday:
“Quasimodo geniti infantes, alleluia: rationabiles, sine dolo lac concupiscite, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.”
That joke is dreadful Low humor.
That was Low, Mark.
(Gong sounding, followed by rim shot.)
Please, don’t quit your day job.
Wait a minute; this IS your day job.
