Happy Easter

In church this Easter morning (my first visit, I fear, since last Easter, but I was ill at Christmas), the reader of the prayers suffered a strangely poetical slip of the tongue. Meaning to pray for 'those whose mortal remains lie buried in this churchyard', he slipped into 'remortal mains'. Remortal - dead again? Alive again? Mains - the principal parts, seas, channels? Mains before afters? Remortal mains - it has a ring to it...
Anyway, here's wishing a very Happy Easter to all who browse here.
