Mann Rogers & Greaves

This anecdote is told of A.C. Clark, a British classical scholar and professor of Latin at Oxford.

Once while visiting a college farm, Clark and his party witnessed a bull servicing a cow. Clark turned to Alan Blakeway (a younger Oxford classicist), who was with him, and said, "Blakeway, omne animal post coitum triste. There was, Blakeway, a firm of solicitors in London called Mann, Rogers, and Greaves."

From The Little, Brown Book of Anecdotes.
