Happy Bloomsday!
Shorter James Joyce:
STATELY, PLUMP BUCK MULLIGAN CAME FROM THE STAIRHEAD, bearing a bowl of lather on which a mirror and a razor lay crossed. A yellow dressing gown, ungirdled, was sustained gently-behind him by the mild morning air. He held the bowl aloft and intoned:
-- Introibo ad altare Dei.
"and his heart was going like mad and yes I said yes I will Yes."
-James Joyce, Ulysses
