Ceremony of Ritual Clout-Casting

All: So... The temperature is warm already. There's a happy sun on the forecast. There's a hosepipe ban being  contemplated in Somerset.

Archdruid: Are there UV warnings?

All: Yea, verily.

Archdruid: And is the pollen count like unto the grains of sand upon the beach, or unto the hordes of Gunner-ites claiming they always said it was right to stick with Arsene Wenger?

All: Yea, even unto the fourth generation.

Archdruid: Then I must consult the holy tree of clout-casting prognostication.

All: YES, EILEEN. THE MAY IS OUT!

Archdruid: Then cast your clout while ye may.

Reading from the Book of Genesis, 2:25 - "And the man and the woman were both naked, but they were not ashamed."

Archdruid: NOT THAT MUCH CASTING!

  1. If Burton Dasset took any selfies, could you forward them (in a brown paper envelope) to the Alderley Edge Townswitches Guild, third cave on the left, Alderley, Cheshire.

  2. I always thought that you resisted casting clouts until May is out, as in after the 31st of May. Not until may is out as in blossom.
    I've posted this comment on 4th June. I tried clout-casting in May but got toooo cold and had to retrieve them.
