Apart From His Outsize Head

Today in CHRISTIANITY: THE FIRST THREE THOUSAND YEARS by Diarmaid MacCulloch, we meet "Big Cap," a "holy fool" of the Russian church "whose specialty apart from his outsize head was apparently intimidating people with gnomic innuendoes." Gnomic innuendoes! In my opinion, the phrase "gnomic innuendoes" is IN ITSELF a gnomic innuendo! Am I blowing your mind?
