Sorry for the miscommunication: *only* the pun is intended (I don't know
enough about EOL to have an opinion). In the European Middle Ages, the
sound of a donkey braying was often likened to the Latin word "amen".
The last verse of the Song of the Ass (or Orientis Partibus), from the
south of France, is, "'Amen' dicas, asine, iam satur ex gramine. 'Amen',
'amen' itera, aspernare vetera." You say "amen", ass, all filled with grass.
