    “It’s certainly ancient, and it’s certainly the head of somebody.”

    I would like more opportunities to say that exact phrase in the execution of my duties.

    …”although he couldn’t be certain it was the head of a saint: “It’s certainly ancient, and it’s certainly the head of somebody.”

    Monty Pythonesque voice… “Waaaaalllll, it’s certainly an ‘ed, innit? could be a saint really, can’t prove it’s not, can ‘ya? Tell you what, give me 10 quid and I’ll throw in the toe nails”

    I was told you can’t get STDs from head…

    There was a great deal of head worship, keeping the heads of ancestors, other head based skullduggery in pre-christian Ireland.

    The head could be older and more important than some mere saint.

    It’s an opportunity to use the term Simony

    “It’s certainly the head of somebody” reminded me of the line from Plan Nine From Outer Space: “But one thing’s sure. Inspector Clay is dead, murdered, and somebody’s responsible.”

    Hey, cool! Just when my tax refund came in!

    Seems like something any number of priests could use.

    Some of these comments remind me of that joke that ends…

    “… I dunno – I never found her body”

    But that’s not the important bit of him, now is it?

    It’s like rule 34 of the middle ages, “If it exists, there’s a patron saint for it”

    Do all English people keep heads in their attics, or is the practice restricted to the upper classes?

    I’m sure he “performed” “miracles” on many genitals. I mean, we all have that phase of life right?

    I thought that it was considered improper to sell relics

      According to the Catholic Church’s Code of Canon Law, “It is absolutely forbidden to sell sacred relics.” (Can. 1190 §1).

    I wonder if this is a poe.

    I. Need. That. Head.

    There’s a pub in Co. Louth that has “leprechaun bones” on display. I wonder if the leprechaun and St. Vitalis knew each other…

    If he’s also from Assisi, that’s three saints from the same place.

      I was wondering if I could collect all three heads of Saint Vitalis, Saint Brylcreem and Saint Alberto VO5.

      • frankieboy says:

        that’s funny, but you might be showing your age! Saints Canoe, Hai Karate and Drakar Noir could fill out the team.

    I don’t know, getting strange head seems like it would CAUSE more STDs than it cures.
