In the Unlikely Event of Meeting a Bishop

Could all Beaker Folk note that, in future, whenever discussing or meeting a Church of England bishop, you should refer to them as "Shirley". If it is the bishop of Beverley, then the appropriate form of address is "Beverly". We will maintain this pretence until it is no longer needed.

    Beverley is near Hull, of course, and Shirley is near Solihull, it seems.
