Comic #1679

1 Monty: Whatever possessed a Pope to install dangerous traps inside the Vatican itself?
2 Minnesota Jones: Oh, it wasn't the Pope. In da Vinci's time, the church was pretty much ruled by the insinuative influence of one Cardinal Cascabel.
3 Minnesota Jones: His rogue interpretation of scripture led to inquisitions, torturings, and murders across all Christendom.
4 Monty: Wow, sounds like a nutcase.
4 Minnesota Jones: Yes, he was a loose canon.

I completely didn't expect this, but there is indeed a Wikipedia article on loose cannons. Not to be confused with canons of course, loose or not.

And here I was wondering what I could possibly write in this annotation. Now it's all done for me!

Now I just have to sit back and wait for someone to say:

"Lose" only has one "o"! It should be a "lose cannon"!
EDIT: Wikipedia has made a liar out of my by deleting the article on "loose cannon". The page now merely contains a redirect to the Wiktionary definition.
