The Book of St Richard, Chapter 29
Continued from Chapter 28.. 1. One day, Richard looked at himself in the glass and said "Am I not a perfect being?" 2. "I am the brainiest zoologist in Oxford, I am so handsome that I have had three or four wives (I forget exactly how many), and my genes are tighter than anyone else's." 3. "What a shame that there are people in the world less worthy to live than I am." 4. "For the butcher is spotty, the baker knoweth no theology, and the candle-stick maker hath arthritis." 5. So Richard spake out to a man known as Brendan the radio host, who made a living by listening to the wise words of sages and prophets, or at least the vain boastings of celebrities.
