God bless you please Mrs. Beamish

Lots of us grew up with Saturday Night Live. I remember in high school we watched it so religiouslyit was almost 'family TV time', along side MASH and The Cosby Show . How many of you remember "In Living Color" (Fire marshal Bill, anyone?). Going even further back how about "Laugh In"? Don't worry, I didn't watch it either. But going back even further, have you ever heard of "Beyond the Fringe"? It was a British radio SNL of sorts (Dudley Moore got his start as part of it). There is a magnificent sermon making fun of the depressingly typical Church of England (C of E) vicar, which some day I will post for your amusement. In the meantime, here is a little number in a similar vein of Beyond the Fringe called "Mrs. Beamish". If you've been in the C of E or it's American equivalent (guess what that is?), I think you may have met her. And if not I hope this might send a smile your way anyway.
