Opened the Grauniad today to find that Gottfried von Bismarck had been found dead in London with traces of illicit substances etc. I was in a play with Gottfried nearly a quarter of a century ago at university - Durrenmatt's The Lesson, if memory serves. He really was one of the gilded youth, famous name, Christ Church, drugs, etc. Oh well. In the gnomic words of a Japanese teeshirt I once saw: Too fast to die, too young to happy. Rest in peace, Gottfried.

I didn’t realise that you had such extravagant connections - I was hoping to impress you with our Vicar but against this fellow he is pretty plain fare.

I hope at least your vicar also dresses up in fishnet stockings and women's clothing on occasion? That would be entirely in keeping with the traditions of the Church of England.

Slipping a little something into the alter boy also has its traditions with the left footers.
