So it turns out that the great and the good of the Church of England are a bunch of hypocritical, sanctimonious, joyless bastards? Who'd have guessed?
Bishop of Bath and Wells: You see I am a colossal pervert. No form of sexual depravity is too low for me. Animal, vegetable, or mineral, I'll do anything to anything. Blackadder: Ah, fine words for a bishop. Nice to hear the Church speaking out on social issues. Bishop of Bath and Wells: You fiend! Never have I encountered such corrupt and foul-minded perversity… Have you ever considered a career in the church? Blackadder: Yes, but I couldn't get used to the underwear.
