Things My Lit Professor Says #2

In discussion of the play The Convent of Pleasure by  Margaret Cavendish, my lit professor was explaining one of the lines in the play for us about a pun in saying that the wall of the convent was a yard thick.

“A yard,” he said, “is a play on the male penis which is a bit generous in my opinion.”

Follow by a brief pause, then “why do I say these things?”

Never a dull moment.
