I Was Extremely Disappointed To See That He Had Arms

Interesting piece from the NYT on the bellringer at Cathedral Notre-Dame in Paris.

There was a joke I used to tell--not so much a joke as an Icelandic-saga-length shaggy dog story containing not one but two groan-inducing puns, which as punch lines become secondary to the actual telling of the joke--that centered on the Cathedral's search for a bellringer to replace the famous Quasimodo. Sadly, the Times piece has no mention of this gentleman's identical twin brother.
