BILLINGSGATE POST: It’s noteworthy that Dr. Billingsgate is deviating from his successful Harry Maguire formula that has brought him fame and fortune. However, exploding sheep may have a greater cult following in England than the overpaid Manchester United defenseman.
Sheep have been part of English literature since Geoffrey Chaucer wrote the Canterbury Tales in the 14th century. It was he who chronicled the invention of the Montana Pole. Even though Montana didn’t exist at that time, the pole did. The Wife of Bath was scornful of its utility. She pleas that Jesus Christ send all women husbands who are young, meek and fresh in bed, along with the grace to forgive them for having sex with a sheep while dangling a pole with a mirror attached before the sheep’s head to see if it were smiling.
I digress: A discerning reader might ask: “What does this have to do with Harry Maguire?”
Slim Everdingle: “The envelope, please: Sis-Boom-Bah.”
Dirty: “Only a mystic could divine the question to that answer: What does a sheep sound like when it explodes?”
