CANONICALS, n. The motley worn by Jesters of the Court of Heaven.
2008 Update: Clothing prescribed the anointed by divine instruction and a subcommittee.
Nuptial ceremonies sanctified by Pachelbel's Canon in D.
Come on, people, can't you find another piece you like?
Did you mean "worn," RBUD? I like "worm," though.
Canonicals: towels and such.
CANONICALS, n. Military enlistees. See CANNON FODDER.
I'm still waiting for someone to perform that Pachelbel piece with tuned howitzers.
Canonicals: Sounds like the uniform required by Coroporate... can't I just wear my jeans please?
Where are the words I can pronounce? In my head it's sounding like canon nickels and I'm 99% sure that's not how you say it.
Much better than polaroidicals, IMO.
Sung to Kodachrome because I'm puffy.
When I think back
On all the crap I learned in seminary
It's a wonder
I can think at all
And though my lack of edu---cation
Hasn't hurt me none
I can read the scripture on the wall
They give us those nice bright colors
They give us the nice white collar
Makes you think all the priests are sunny and gay, Oh yeah
I got a studded Chasuble
I love to own a Papal tiara
So father don't take my Canonicals away
Just satisfied with what grows on me.
Canonicals -- are the same as cantoffticals -- and don't stick any to your carbumper unless you want them there forever!
Weirsdo, who chooses wedding music while thinking outside the box? (And yes.)
TLP, now we know they are there to absorb saliva.
Haha, Amoeba. Synchronized shotguns is more like it.
Nowadays, Terry? You betcha.
Can't help you there, Jenn. I read but don't speak.
Accompanying conical caps, Actonbell.
Haha, AP3, in almost every case.
Well done, Cooper.
Icy, you have a natural alb.
Quilly, that's why I drive in reverse.
Canonicals -- Californians who shoot their canons off with the slightest of encouragement.
