I am delighted that so many of my friends have transferred here to WordPress following our eviction from Vox.
It is to be hoped that my posts will gradually improve from the following low point, but I needed to find out how to work all this foreign WordPress machinery with a piece of rubbish , just in case it shreds it into a million pieces.
My neighbour, Saint Martin of The Fields of Tea, is not a newcomer when it comes to making submissions for additional Commandments.
One of his previous attempts;
“Thou shalt not buyeth green bananas lest they should not have time to ripen before thou dieth”
was rejected by The Archbishop of Canterbury on the grounds of lack of originality, and that it was too age-specific, only being of relevance to ancient relics like Saint Martin himself, and GOF.
This time, writhing in both spiritual and physical agony on the floor of his workshop, clutching at his one damaged wrist with the other hand, Saint Martin verily announc-ed;
“Thou shalt not use thine hand as a hammer.”
Or words to that effect.
This time he’s going directly to the Pope.
His Eleventh Commandment proposal is now in The Vatican vestry awaiting Ratzinger Ratification.
