Sts Methodius and Cyril

Sts Methodius and Cyril,
two brothers from Thessalonika,
brought prayers and a bible
and a supply of Spanakopita
to Moravia. Since Slavs don’t speak
Thessalonikan or Greek,
the brothers invented the Glagolithic
and Cyrillic alphabets. The Slavs
said, “Hey, that’s … just terrific …”
which was good for laughs.

    I like your version better than the one in the Roman Missal.

    Korrektiv Konnexion, by the bye: St Cyril’s tomb is in St Clement’s Basilica!

    Good one.

  3. Rufus McCain says

    Slavs and half-Slavs
    always seem to get the
    last laughs and the half-laughs.
