Patron Saint of Dark Humor

Don’t already know the joke? Click and be amused.

Happy feast day to Larry D., Larry L.! And all the other Lawrence-y types, except those of you who’ve taken on one of the dozen or so saints also by that name.  Note that martyrdom seems to be the common theme.  Just sayin’.

      A: “My good and faithful servant, well done.”
