Ah...yes...St Edmonds...



Became King of Engerland at the age of 15 and was killed by the bacon slicers of Denmark.

Apparently he became a saint following his death as the sizzling breakfast men had beheaded him and dumped his head in the woods.His followers found the head guarded by a talking wolf and miraculously the head and body were joined together by St Bostik.

The Airfix king later moved to Bury where he created black puddings and met Ian Ogilvy,a saint who drove an XJS.

St George is a Yorkshire thing.Like George at Asda.

:incheek:
