Church of England reacts as woman named laureate

The headline in The New York Times reads: "After 341 Years, Britain Picks a Female Poet Laureate"

In other news, the Archbishop of Canterbury has authorized a network of "flying laureates" to minister to those who don't believe that God intended women to write poetry, but who want to continue to read it.

Brilliant, Jim.

Well done.

Sheer genius, Jim.

Nicely played, sir. Fortunately, we won't need any of these innovative LOLaureates out our way.
