Funnily enough, I have been increasingly dissatisfied with that headline. Looking at the original "The Lion and Albert" monologue, it is clear that I should have written Yon lion's eaten our Oaten.
"The Lion and Albert" was written by Marriott Edgar, who turns out to have been something of a political philosopher. In his "The Magna Charter" he wrote the immortal final stanza:
And it's through that there Magna Charter,
As were made by the Barons of old,
That in England today we can do what we like,
So long as we do what we're told.
