When I read that, I imediately thought of this little ditty by Rhett & Link.
I thought of this old National Lampoon Radio Hour bit:
Everyone knows the proper answer to the question “Well, what is myrrh, anyway?” is “It is a valuable balm.”
No one knows what a balm’s gonna do. They’re unpredictable.
I suppose it comes from balm trees.
This is what I thought of immediately: Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, “Gospel Truth”. https://youtu.be/0smTooIYDO0?t=486
That’s the relevant part, but the whole thing is funny.
There’s also a longer video version, but it handles the myrrh differently, so to speak.
