Well and good, OT...now how about getting off your duff and giving the Mick a hand? He's just gotten punished by the nuns and someone brought him a blueberry pie and elderberry wine. You better check in at the "Mick Resurfaces" string. (see below)

The Mick knew he only had one chance to escape the wrath of this bevy of furies. If only Queen Regina or the Queen Mum would come forward and speak in his behalf! Where were they?...Why wouldn't they help him? He had spent the better part of his adult life on SI defending the Queen's honor and trying to find the ring of CoNaCl which would clear the Queen for once and for all.
