It is the school Christmas Pageant of 1967, and Kevin - an eleven year old boy with a very beautiful alto voice - is singing his solo 'Hark the Herald Angels Sing', which he has practiced over and over again with the grade six music teacher until it is perfect. It is the evening, and the auditorium is filled with parents and other assorted relatives...
The spot light focuses upon the angelic little face, but the words which come out are:
Hark the herald angels sing
Ex-Lax pills are just the thing.
Peace on earth and mercy mild
Two for mother, one for child
He is just finishing the crescendo...
Joyful all ye nations rise
Fills your toilet to the skies
...when the principal reaches him.
It takes a LONG time for the teachers to bring all the children under control again.
It is, of course, 1967 and there is still a strap hanging on display in the principal's office, though it is not used very often nowadays... does it come off the wall and down upon Kevin's angelic little bottom?
(Note - yes, David - and Kier -, I know it's actually a picture of a Bar Mitzvah boy and all)
