Teenage satire - is there anything more scathing?! Save the "Save the Church" signs, indeed!
Unlike much of the rest of this comic, I believe this incident may be a more or less accurate representation of a visit to a cathedral en route to our field centre. I vaguely remember Lynne (as we're calling her!) waxing poetic about the charms of an ancient church while we, her less than religious wards, were being struck by the number of items which seemed to merit their own separate restoration funds. I don't remember it being Tewkesbury Cathedral but, since that's what it says here, I have no reason to doubt that it was. For the record, I don't remember having hiccups either.
Of far greater importance, however, is that fluffy-looking figure lurking in the bottom left-hand corner of Panel 3 ... it's a gofal!
I have no idea how "gofal" is really pronounced in Welsh. I imagine it involves making a dreadful gurgling sound at the back of the throat and struggling to make each vowel as round and as long and drawn out as possible. For our purposes, however, it rhymes with "waffle".
