Panis What Pun Is

Friday May 23rd 2008, 2:06 pm

As if to help us celebrate the feast of Corpus Christi, archeologists in England have excavated two “massive” granaries built beside a fifth-century Christian church. I don’t think the Journal reporter intended the pun, although he labored mightily for our pun-ishment in the title of his article: Romans Were Upper Crust on Daily Bread. (Don’t you just hate it when people pun that way?)

While we’re at it, I should mention that I wrote a book about Corpus Christi, and I managed to do it without punning once. It’s Praying in the Presence of Our Lord: With St. Thomas Aquinas.
