Ken - Hello!
I rather liked your anecdote - though its a bit non-rootsweb of course
and one just wonders how a CORNISH joke got such a good quoting in New
Hampshire Gazette - presumambly far away in the States!
Reminded one of a not disimilar short one about famed BILLY BRAY Cornish
evangelistic Methodist tin-mining preacher who reportedly proclaimed in
one of his fiery sermons - but I'm loosely quoting it from memory now...
<If the Devil put un in a Barrel, ee'd shout <Hallelujah> through the
bung hole!> <g>
Good wishes, you might find more from that mine of tit-bits...
