    Firsty, you’ve put your paw on the nub of the problem. If you don’t get a knighthood for this ‘toon then there’s no justice. Uh-oh, I forgot, there is no justice.

    That s0d doesn’t deserve tasty salt and vinegar chips – two year-old Cheezels infested with weevils are more befitting.

    Salt and battery acid, perhaps.

    Zut: what have you got against cheezels (or, for that matter, weevils)?
    FD: excellent! The latin grammar, too.

    Its a confessional. I was hoping for a seal.

    How very very disturbing that the salt and vinegar chips bit is quite probably the only part that isn’t verbatim from a transaction that has actually taken place many times.

    This is GOLD, FD! So close to the mark (like, right on it). Adherents of the faith might dismiss this (of course), just like they might dismiss any references to inquisitions and conquests of days of yore, but this self-compartmentalisation is exactly what keeps the secrets secret. If only inviolability was inherited by the meek, instead of being used as a reason to ignore them…

    FIRST POOCH ON THE DUNE: You have excelled yourself.

    Utterly brilliant. And hat tip to Venise in newsletter comments, I think.

    ASGREYAS: Without the confessional the Catholic Church wouldn’t have all those deviant paedophilies as priests. Secrecy can a breeding ground for evil.
