Our eighth Sunday outpouring of sanctimony and self-righteous morality to be taken as seriously as Bill Walker’s ‘family man’ claims
ONE PARLIAMENT, a Firstminster found a snake stiff and frozen with investment cold. He had self-serving compassion upon it, and taking up its case, placed it to his bosom.
The snake was quickly revived by the warmth, and resuming its natural instincts, bit its benefactor, inflicting on him a serious wound.
“Oh”, cried the Firstminster with a disbelieving breath, “I am rightly served for pitying a scoundrel.”
Analysis: The most obvious Trumpton moral in the taking things literally sense is: “The greatest kindness will not bind the ungrateful.” But, taken into consideration, in terms of the Firstminster, the moral is more likely: “Could ye no have seen it comin ya daftie.”
