Dr Bosco solves your problems

My bruvver Bosco has started giving out meddical advice.

Jessica sneezing

Q: Dear Bosco, I am suffering from a sneezing fit. Can you help me?

A: Yes, of course sister Jessica. As well as being the only saved person round here, and known for giving helpful advice to Jesus, I am of course a skilled plumber and concert-standard nose-flautist. What is less well known is that I took a one-day course in medicine, which means that I know more about curing colds, flu, and allergies than any quack Brit MD who deserves to be thrown in the trash.

Q: So what do you recommend, Bosco, dear?

A: I've found that Jack Chick's vitriolic nasal spray will remove your nose problems in no time. Don't bother with antibiotics, antihistamines, or Anti Moly's gin - just order your concentrated H2SO4 over the Internet. Or of course Chuck Smith's hydrofluoric acid nasal spray is even more potent...

Q: Thank you so much, Bosco, darling, but...

A: ... but of course it doesn't work unless you are a truly saved person who hates Catholics and is waiting for the Rapture. Next patient, please!

  4. Of course, Jessica - you see while you were ill, I had to reprove dear Eccles, and ask him whether he was being helpful, kind and truthful about a very dear friend of mine.

    Well - Eccles must have had a "Road to New Addington" moment (That's like a Road to Damascus moment, except that you go blind from drinking meths with a tramp under the bypass).

    He became a truly saved person, and now he has volunteered to help out at Messy Church on First Sundays of the Month at St Rosa of Luxemberg's parish, owing to the Ms Lenina Crowne 's unavoidable absence, as she pursues a welsh blogger with a large pritt stick.

  7. I notice, Eccles, that your brother Bosco has refrained from asking your patient to bite him.

    I can only assume that this must be for fear of catching those same germs, which does not sound encouraging as to the efficaciousness of this savd pussons cough remedy.

    The famous medical saying, Savd pusson, bite thyself springs spontaneously to mind ...

  10. That is no cloud at St Pancras station. Rather, it is the famous middle-eastern sculpture entitled:

    "The Pittà" (the bread-unleavened).
