The bells of York Minster sound out for Easter
“Oranges and limes!”, began one of the chimes,
“Ee, it’s good to be back, though m’ rope’s a bit slack.”
“What I want to know,” said the bell that sounds So,
“We was laid off, but what were t’ reason for that?”
“I don’t rightly know”, said t’ great bell tuned Do.
(False ending – i.e. slight pause, during which people who think the song has already finished may start to applaud, only to be interrupted by the the start of the next verse.)
“I’ve news about that”, piped oop t’bell tuned Bb.
“News? Pray announce!”, clanged several at once.
The UK trying to leaving the EU may turn out to be like Captain Yossarian trying to leave the air force, in Catch-22. I have written a song about this, entitled, “There’s a hole in my Brexit.” Here are the lyrics.
Affectionate parody of Westboro Baptist Church’s own witty parodies of popular songs.

For them to attain marriage equality with the rest of us, people who identify as bisexual, must immediately be allowed to practise “different sex bigamy”. The governments of the world (if indeed they still be plural) must all immediately allow each self-identified “bisexual” person to marry two spouses, one a husband, the other a wife.
British actor Stephen Fry (depicted left, in role) once observed that the name of the British politician Virginia Bottomley was an anagram of “I’m an evil Tory bigot”. Fry went on to claim (tongue-in-cheek) that this comical coincidence amounted to proof of the existence of God.
I continue this blog’s long and noble tradition of what I like to call “humor-phobia”, by reminding readers that the title of the recent case in the Supreme Court of the United States that imposed same sex marriage throughout the entire U.S.A. was Obergefell v. Hodges.
Doing a Fry myself, I have spotted that “Obergefell versus Hodges” just happens to be an anagram of the title of this blog post: “U.S. begs God for severe hell“.
James Rhodes’ love song to Stephen Fry
Why did the mass media almost always mention Stephen Fry, in reports of James Rhodes victory in the Supreme Court? The victory clearing the way for the publication of his book Instrumental, which documents the homosexual abuse of James Rhodes during his childhood?
Was Fry’s intervention really necessary, in order for the public to tolerate Rhodes telling the truth about what happened to him? Will every other survivor of underage homosexual abuse henceforth need the sponsorship of a gay celebrity, to establish his credentials as not-in-the-least homophobic, before he’s allowed to write publicly about his ordeal? You’d think so, judging by this precedent!
