Monks wondering why God wants them to make shitload of beer

MONKS have asked why God needs them to make lots of quite strong beer.

The brothers of Trinnash Abbey, an ancient monastery known for its 6.2 per cent Trinnash Brown Ale which is also sold in supermarkets, have asked for clarification on the whole beer thing.

Brother Tom Logan said: “Maybe I’m missing something, but selling beer and getting pissed seem to be quite at odds with the other aspects of being a monk, like prayers and gardening.

“Apparently our beer is an ‘ancient and holy tradition’ but it’s still stronger than Stella. I had four bottles last night and couldn’t even remember the Lord’s Prayer this morning because my head felt like it was in a vice.

“Overall though I do like the beer-making thing, it just seems a bit weird, like Jesus having a casino.”

However 89-year-old Brother Roy Hobbs said: “It is written in the scriptures that God appeared in the sky in the form of a beer bottle.

“He said to some monks ‘ye shall go forth and glorify my name in a 6.2 per cent ABV beer with a malty finish. And ye canst have a beer allowance of six bottles per night, per monk, for ye trouble.’

“So there it is. God said it and it is good. But those other monks who make cider are heretics and will burn forever.”

Everything you 'need' to know about Baby Sussex

ARE you desperate to know every last detail about someone else’s baby? Read our slightly creepy guide.

What will the baby be called?

Despite being a boy, the royal baby will be called Diana, due to the British public’s obsession with the ‘People’s Princess’. Other names considered by Meghan and Harry included Tyson, Adele and Boba Fett.

How much did the baby weigh?

7lb 3oz. If this information in any way enriches your life then for fuck’s sake get a hobby, even if it’s taking photos of roundabouts.

Where is the baby in the line of succession?

Sadly Baby Sussex is only 128th in line to the throne due to having lots of obscure German relatives such as Count Susan Von Grayskull of Schloss Adler, and so is likely to become a pathetic figure like Prince Charles who pretends he runs a business making biscuits.

Can you describe the birth in unnecessary detail?

Yes. Meghan’s cervix would have dilated, allowing Baby Sussex to enter her vagina. After several hours of screaming the baby would have emerged covered in mucus, followed by the royal afterbirth which is due to be interviewed tomorrow by Piers Morgan.

What will the baby be like when he grows up?

Despite Baby Sussex only being one day old, it is reasonable to speculate that he could turn into a goofy bellend like his great-uncle Prince Andrew.

When can I see the baby?

Harry and Meghan are sure to release official pictures soon, or you can break into Frogmore Cottage with a screwdriver and see the baby in person before being wrestled to the ground by four massive ex-paras.
