image for Cleanliness Not Next To Godliness Shock
A Dictionary Yesterday

Purists of the English language were left reeling today when the new cable tv programme 'Proverb Busters' concluded that cleanliness was not next to godliness.

The producer for the programme Happy Harry stated 'The guys on the programme took little time to blow this one out of the water, they look at a dictionary and found that the two words are nowhere near each other'.

Another proverb under the spotlight is 'People In Glasshouses'. 'This is a tougher one to expose as crap but we may adapt it as a compromise to- "people in glass houses shouldn't go the toilet'.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
