Chris Tenning Crisis

by 3arn0wl

The newest arrival to Little Sniffy got more than he bargained for at St. Mary Magdalene’s yesterday, when friend of the family, the newly ordained Curate, Christine Tenning, conducted the service.

Rather than the customary sprinkling of Holy water on his head, the infant underwent something akin to total immersion, as he wriggled out of the priest’s hands and ended up in the church’s Norman Font.

Doting parents Mr. and Mrs. Youspell-That, and their toddler Howard, had gathered around the font, with Godparents Mr. and Mrs. Ties and their daughter Barbara, to celebrate the welcoming into the church of their newest arrival, Charles Edward.

Unfortunately however, the Curate had failed to grasp that the parents’ referral to the child by another name was merely a working title, and thus the infant ended up being christened Spud.

Hymns sung during the service included Dear Lord and Father.

A chip off the old block

Mr. and Mrs. Youspell-That are delighted to announce the birth of their second son.

Keen gardener, Mr. Youspell-That had been lifting King Edwards, Jersey Royals & Des Lynhams on their allotment when his wife’s waters broke.

There’s been singing and dancing, acting and dairy-related food to celebrate the auspicious birth.

The doting parents are hoping that their son will become a teacher, a philosopher or a hero, but are keenly aware of the age-old adage: “September’s child will be a success while August’s child will have all the stress.”
