Twitmericks in the Guardian Diary

Nice little reference in today’s Guardian Diary to my tweet from the Archbishop:

“Just a few days into the job and the new archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, has taken to reputation management. He didn’t mind when twitmericks, the limerick master of the twitterati, penned the following last winter. “There is an old bishop named Justin/ The C of E places its trust in/ As bish on the Wear/ For only a year/ By episcopal standards he’s thrustin.” But last week’s posting by twitmericks (“There was a boy singer named Justin/Who got all aggressive & thrustin/Unwantedly papped/He suddenly snapped/In language profane & disgustin'”) left the head of the archbish a little worried. “Just for the record that is another justin,” he tweeted, by way of clarification. Would potty-mouthed Justin Bieber want to be mistaken for him?”
