Pangur Bán


Whenever I’m tempted to yell at my students for wasting time online when they should be working, I just have to remind myself that that’s pretty much where Pangur Bán came from.

  1. Words tempted monk, and mice the cat;
    They both knew where their bliss was at.
    I sympathize with beast and brother,
    I cannot choose the one o’er t’other.

    Delicious words may feed the mind,
    But when the belly calls, you’ll find
    A perfect meal (such avis rara)
    Pangur Ban’s a restaurant in Connemara.
