“that’s a mortaler”

Saying “that’s a mortaler” is how my brother and I would refer to wrongs that Catholic school taught us were mortal sins. My upcoming book jokingly uses the saying “that’s a mortaler” as a callback. A callback is the humorous repetition of a word, phrase, or concept that has been previously stated within a stand-up comedy performance.
