I often get told off, mainly by my wife, about my very off-beat sense of humor. Though those that have had the misfortune to follow my writings over the years (and, alas, I have written much) have been shocked and delighted in equal part as to how naughty I can be, with a straight face. I have always maintained that this wicked (in the truest sense of the word) sense of humor was a very British thing. I just saw proof of it, and it cracked me up — especially as it is a word I use often.

This was in ‘The Economist‘ no less. ‘The Economist‘ is an highbrow, well respected British publication that has been in continuous print since 1843. (So that is from before the Civil War for those whose history starts with the advent of Google).

This was brilliant. Thank you. Made my day. Completely stopped me in my tracks. I was actually writing about the new style rings that were given to the six cardinals that were created on Saturday.

It will be available from Amazon (U.S. & U.K.) as of Christmas Day, which is a shame because some might have wanted this for Christmas.

Note to wife: ‘No dear, I don’t want this for Christmas. God didn’t draw mine anyway, as you know. I think my parents did a fairly good job with the artwork.


I don’t have this book, but I have read quite a bit about it. This is a book that I would like as many people to read, since this is a topic that I am fervent about. No, circumcision is not practiced in Sri Lanka, thank God.

If you are buying books, it is indeed perfectly acceptable if you buy some of mine. I could do with some royalties.
