Perhaps Aslan should not have been allowed in the wardrobe...

It's a crazy world...

More 80s Irish rock band puns please


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/CJ.Dennis

I live in Australia so I know little of '80s Irish rock bands. What's the pun?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/pious.pools

Aslan was a popular band here in the 1990s, best known for the song Crazy World!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AntonSween

Still as popular as ever!

Just a BTW - an identical sounding word "leamhan" means "clothes moth". You might have those eating clothes in the wardrobe alright. :)

An Irish pun! Hahahahaha! :)

At least he's not eating children any more...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TobyBartels

Sure he is, he's just not taking their clothes off first anymore.

    just clothes? was there anyone in the clothes???


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SophieofGavaldon

    The lion already ate the children, remember?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DarthPontifex

    And who the hell's going to stop the lion? eh? eh?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SophieofGavaldon

    No, this must be on of the times pol got in trouble. He just sat and watched as the lion ate the children and their clothes.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Judah791387

    Maybe it was Pol's clothes. Hence he isn't risking his dignity to help the children. :p

    So, this lion is the cat Paul is drinking wine in front of?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TellTheSeal

    "Itheann an leon éadaí." For a moment, there, I thought "the lion eats Eddy."
