So put that in your pipe, my Lord Otto, and smoke it (meaning)

Posted by Jemima on May 28, 2004

this line is from a poem (Lay of St. Odille) by Thomas Ingolsby and that line is the reply from the saint to Lord Otto (father of Odille) who didn't want to marrry count Herman and preferred to be a nun

i'm not sure about the meaning, any ideas?
