How we laughed, me and the Afternoon Group at the URC. Because I jettisoned my usual desire to do something very worthy and educative and had a Leunig hour instead. Which is actually very worthy and educative - but fun as well. Whilst reading "Dear God, We give thanks for birds..." I was reminded of yesterday's dilemma:
"Especially we praise their disregard for the human hierarchy and the ease with which they leave their droppings on the heads of commoners or kings regardless."I had to smile at this, told the story at my own expense. And later, in one of many bright conversations triggered by something of Leunig's I'd read (teapots, pets, whistlers), Phil said that as I was talking about seagulls a prayer in Leunig style had entered his head. It was, "Dear God, we thank you that cows cannot fly."
