Fight Against Maturity

OK, Vicar. Pony up the drawers.

Summer fete committee members in Langton Herring, Dorset, were forced to slash costs for the annual summer party due to the recession. Committee member Amanda King jokingly suggested using the pants as bunting after hearing there was not enough money to buy new decorations.

Villagers have responded by donating hundreds of pants and knickers of all shapes and sizes.

“We all thought that life is a bit of pants these days so how appropriate to fly pants instead of bunting,” said Mrs King. “It’s given people a bit of a chuckle although I don’t think everyone approves,” said committee chairman Anne Kerins added.

“Ann has run with the idea and the village has been very supportive. We even hope to have some holy pants from the vicar.

More at Gulls force vicar to wear hard hat

A Cornish vicar has resorted to wearing a hard hat to church as protection from dive-bombing seagulls. The seagulls are protecting a chick in the graveyard of St Petroc’s in Bodmin, Cornwall, reports the Daily Telegraph.

The Rev Canon Graham Minors said: “It is a case of mother nature. People are able to walk through the churchyard safely but if you get too close you might be dive-bombed.”

Rev Minors said it would be wrong to move the seagulls and he believes they will calm down once the chick leaves the nest.
