Fry the Flag!

The Archbishop of Canterbury has announced that St George is to be phased out as England’s patron saint – to be replaced by QI host and all round wit Stephen Fry. Several miracles have already been attributed to Fry – first and foremost his ability to read just about every single book in existence, like it and then give it a witty promotional epitaph on the back cover. Said archbishop Dr Rowan Williams; “Everybody sort of likes Stephen Fry, from university students to old aged pensioners. In the true tradition of the greatest saints he breaks down our established conventions of what we think we know with his unmatched wisdom, his turn of phrase and all round fruity eccentricity and this makes him a saint we can surely all relate to.â€
