The phrase "de minimis non curat lex" appears in a libidinous limerick of the kind famously collected by Gershon Legman ("There was a young maid from Pawtucket"):
There was a young law student named Rex,
· Who had very small organs of sex.
· When charged with exposure,
· He said with composure:
· De minimis non curat lex
And there are others that exploit both the same lex-sex rhyme and the implied rhythm imposed on the Latin tag.
