The Law May Not, But We Do, Care For Trifles
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.
