22 October 2011. Bishop Mel’s Guests: An Anecdote for Our Time

I wish that I had come up with this one… you guys are just too much! Thanks to my anonymous interlocutor… stuff like this keeps me (and all of us) going…


Bishop Mel’s cell attendant came up to him and said, “Vladyki, two guests are here to see you… the Pope of Rome, and Leonid Kishkovsky. Who shall I show in first?” Bishop Mel was deep in thought for a moment… then, he told his aide, “Show in the Pope… with him, I only have to kiss his ring”.


This is clear to all grounded people. Lyonyo Kishkovsky (along with his organ-grinder monkeys Stokoe, Wheeler, and Jillions) is “too big for his britches”. We need a “Ilya Muromets”, and we need him NOW. Bishop Mel ain’t perfect… but that’s as good as you get in our fallen world… so, he’s got my vote (he’s NOT the Great White Hope or Old King Cole, but he’s quite good enough). Vladyki… it’s time to “kick ass and take names”… and you can start with Lyonyo, Jillions, and Stokoe… and turn over Bobby and his pals to the Feds (which would include Wheeler for being part of the gag until it became “inconvenient” for Lyonyo).

It’s time to call in the chips…
