Lord have mercia

Hey, did you know there was a country called “Mercia” way back when, in what is now England? I found out about it while researching a post I am doing on the British Monarchy, but  I think there must be a good joke to be made in connection with this. Let me know if you figure out what it is.

What's your stake in this, cowboy?
