Good Friday’s Mental Exercise

A couple thousand years ago a man suggested that it might be a nice idea if we tried being pleasant to one another. He was duly executed in brutal fashion. This isn’t a post about him (a Mr Arthur Fledermaus, in case you were wondering).  Instead, in honour of the recently departed Richard Griffiths, picture a dialogue with Mr Griffiths telling you about the ghastly cash bar in Heaven and why as a result he’s decided to come back as a ghost and haunt public changing rooms.

I think it’s what he would’ve wanted.

Then raise a glass of your local poison and toast him with a quote of your choice.  I’d recommend this gem from Uncle Monty “I mean to have you, boy, even if it must be burglary.”

Richard Griffiths you will be missed.

  1. “I think the carrot infinitely more fascinating than the geranium. The carrot has mystery. Flowers are essentially tarts. Prostitutes for the bees. There is, you’ll agree, a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ oh so very special about a firm, young carrot.”

    I am a botany/horticulture librarian and a couple of years ago we started a DVD collection. I tried very hard to have this included. I failed. Instead, the library purchased Silent Running and Avatar.

  2. “The best moments in reading are when you come across something – a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things – that you’d thought special, particular to you. And here it is, set down by someone else, a person you’ve never met, maybe even someone long dead. And it’s as if a hand has come out, and taken yours.”
