Archdruid Dave: On this "Call Everyone Dave Day", may peace be with Dave.
Dave's: And also with Dave.
Psalms ( A song of King Dave)
The Liturgical Dance of the Eternal Brooms
Archdruid Dave: Name this child?
Dave: Well, if it was a boy we were going to call him Rodney, after Dave. But seeings it's a girl, we're calling her Dave.
Archdruid Dave: Good luck, Dave.
Daves: You're gonna need it.
Hymn: When the Spirit of the Lord is within my heart, I will dance as David danced.
Archdruid Dave: Eww. Can you please all put your clothes on again?
Daves: Sorry, Eileen - we mean, Dave. Just taking the song seriously.
Archdruid Dave: I've warned you about crude literalism before. And that was literally crude. And in front of little Dave. Lucky she was asleep. Clearly what the songwriter meant - figuratively speaking - is that you should all upset your partners and celebrate killing Philistines and Jebusites.
Daves: Righto, Archdruid Dave.
Archdruid Dave: Now go out into the world, sweep the floor for the kingdom - following the example of Trigger and of Dave Herbert - and be Dave to the world.
Daves: Righto, Dave.
Serious Note: I believe the recent Pancreatic Cancer advertising campaign is crass. The implication of "I wish I had X cancer instead" is insulting, trivialising other cancers and treating their sufferers, the people who die from them and their families with disrespect.
But. Pancreatic cancer is a dreadful disease, which has taken a disproportionate number of creative people. It has a dreadful mortality rate - which could be explained in all sorts of better ways. Let's get behind the fight against all forms of cancer. And wish all the best, on what would have been his 70th birthday, to one of our funniest actors, Roger Lloyd Pack, aka Trigger. May his broom be lifted up, and sweep forever.
