Vicars General, etc...

Another reason to worship at the Shrine - this Gilbert and Sullivan parody. Kudos to Matt and Lauren of the Cnytr 'blog. In the comments box, Tim Ferguson explains that a Vicar General is 'the crook at the top of the bishop's staff. This reminds me of the unofficial definition of a mitre - 'An embroidered container for a vaccuum'.
Given that today is the feast of St. Jerome (one of those Doctors of the Church one does not want to tangle with...) I share this link to my favourite image of the saint.
Finally, from Japan, the Corriere della Sera gives us this picture of the Boyfriend's Arm Pillow which is designed to provide emotional comfort for those unwilling to sleep alone.
