R.E.T.V.

Back to the stupid puns. Sorry – it appears to be all I’ve got.

We were musing, the way you do, about what the schedule of a religious TV channel might look like. (I understand they actually have these in the US, but this would be a very UK version.) So far we’ve come up with:

Big Bretheren

Vocation, Vocation, Vocation

Top of the Popes

One Man and His Dogcollar

Manicheans Behaving Badly

Wish You Were Here(tic)

Now look, I’m not going to take all the blame for this – I was partly inspired by Le Poulet Noir, so you can register your complaints over there.
