Analysis: High Court is being asked to curb the Dáil's scope for debate
A congress of priests once sent an emissary to heaven with a direct question for God aimed at resolving a burning issue. The Almighty was asked to definitively rule on whether the Jesuits were superior - or whether all priests were of equal rank.
The eventual answer read: "All priests are equal. Sincerely, God SJ."
If you've read this far, hopefully you know SJ stands for Society of Jesus, the official name of the Jesuits. But re-telling that old joke, is not an attempt to prejudice the proceedings in Court 29 of the Four Courts, which yesterday entered day three.
