B.B.B Bastard (esq.) claims to head the list of Goofle hits for the phrase 'Unapologetic ass man'. He should look to his laurels, is all I can say. Don't let A.K. steal them. I think he cooks with them or something.
Images come from a particular Renaissance iconographic tradition known as the "Pope-Ass" or the "Papal Ass", initiated by Luther and Melachthon, who were as well-known in their day as Sherlock and Watson (Luther was the detective, Melachthon was his trusty amanuensis). The story also involved the 'monk-calf' visual tradition, and continued to reverberate a century later into Liceti's volume "De Monstrorum".
The oral exams for a Diploma in Advanced Explaining Voice require one to recite the entire saga.
