John Knox's grave has been paved over. :) It's now a parking lot. :) I have to wonder if teens ever park on top and . . . . well - do those things teens like to do but shouldn't.

ACTUALLY - I'd love to rent that lot - set up an alter directly over his grave and have a mass offered for the salvation of souls in purgatory. :cool:

Once a Reformer named Knox,
Was buried in a plain wooden box,
Teen lovers would park o'er him
Though they never adored him
They were just trying to get off their rocks.
