  1. As a connoisseur of puns, you will appreciate this:

    “Some friars were behind on their belfry payments, so
    they opened up a small florist shop to raise the funds.

    Since everyone liked to buy flowers from the men of
    God, the rival florist across town thought the competition
    was unfair. He asked the good fathers to close down, but
    they would not. He went back and begged the friars to close.
    They ignored him. He asked his mother to go and ask the
    friars to get out of business. They ignored her, too.

    So, the rival florist hired Hugh MacTaggart, the roughest
    and most vicious thug in town, to “persuade” them to close.
    Hugh beat up the friars and trashed their store, saying he’d
    be back if they didn’t close shop. Terrified, the friars did so,
    thereby proving that . . .

    Hugh, and only Hugh, can prevent florist friars.”
