Priest: Prince Philip be with you. Congregation: You managed not to get eaten then? Priest: Aren't most of you descended from pirates? Congregation: You're too fat. Priest: Do you still throw spears at each other?Eccles: So what will you do now that your god is dead? Archbishop: We are moving from a Vetus Ordo worship of Prince Philip to a Novus Ordo worship of Prince Charles. My man Annibale Bugsbunni is looking for the new god's memorable sayings, but all he has come up with so far is "To get the best results you must talk to your vegetables" and some stuff about carbon dioxide, organic muesli, and monstrous carbuncles. Annibale has a difficult task on his hands. Eccles: Well, good luck with that. Archbishop, thank you very much.
This is me, Eccles
