HUMAN 1: Everyone's entitled to their beliefs. I never agreed
with my parent's religion, but I wouldn't dream of knocking it.
HUMAN 2: What were they?
HUMAN 1: Seventh day advent hoppists. They believed that every Sunday
should be spent hopping. They would hop to church, hop through the
service, then hop back home again.
HUMAN 2: What was the idea behind that, then?
HUMAN 1: Well you see, they took the Bible literally. Adam and Eve; the
snake and the apple... Took it word for word. Unfortunately, their
version had a misprint. It was all based on 1 Corinthians 13, where it
says "Faith, hop and charity, and the greatest of these is hop." So
that's what they did. Every seventh day. I tell you, Sunday
lunchtimes were a nightmare. Hopping round the table, serving soup --
we all had to wear sou'esters and asbestos underpants.
