Limerick of Kathmandu

A young traveler to old Kathmandu
decided to get himself a tattoo
of a phrase in Sanskrit
that he thought was legit,
but it read, "Don't lick the wild ape canoe!"

    • I would suggest the rule, “Don’t get a textual tattoo in a language you aren’t fluently literate in, particularly if you know the tattoo artist also is not literate in that language” (the chance of a tattoo artist also being a Sanskrit scholar has got to be slim.)
