Gifts of Gold


I see that Rowan Atkinson, the Archbishop of Cadbury, met with Pope Ratzo recently to discuss carving up the world into spheres of influence and the trade in souls. I think the whole spectacle was summed up by His Eminence’s gift to our Rowan of a gold cross. I am reminded of the parable of the camel of easy virtue passing a needle for a Samaritan pauper prospering in the vineyard of the prodigal son who was stoning an adulteress. I wonder how many poor people in the slums of Rio that cross would have fed.

You know it’s always struck me as somewhat incongruous that Ray Mears, the world renowned survivalist (well, at least in the UK), is a bit of a chunky chap. Perhaps he’s simply a very good survivalist and can find a surfeit of food.

  1. It's all those grubs and worms he eats - full of calories. And as for your comments on the madness of religion - amen to that.

  2. I bet Ray puts a bit of sugar on all that survival grub to make it go down more easily.

  3. As they remarked in 'Viz' magazine some months ago...
    'for a bloke who lives on twigs and ants he's a bit of a fat b*****d' . Or something like that.

  4. I heard that the ABC and Ratzi were loaded into the LHC and fired at each other? Scientists were hoping to find the elusive BS particle, the one that causes Catholic mass.. no?

  5. every year, people contribute millions to the main religious temples in India. How many villages would have got lighted up or got basic drinking water with that money, I wonder! Its just amazing how peculiar human beings are!!
