Flights of black horsemen soar over churches

Contrary to popular misconception, Neo-Gothic architecture does not actually involve black nail polish, Doc Martens or fish-net stockings.

Cristo does have a project to wrap Cologne Cathedral* in actual fish-net so it will look like it's wearing stockings, but so far the locals have vetoed this plan on account of the fish flapping about and smelling.

Gothic-revival Avionics: WRONG
If the engines keep falling out of your aeroplanes then you should invest in Pugin's 14-cylinder air-cooled Goblin radial engines, with the overhead tappet valves and the concentric cam shaft!

* Our Pedantry Reporter sez: Not actually a Cathedral.

I cannot attend the service at Our Lady of the Blessed Beatings this week. I am helping a friend rebore his rotary chaos engine. It is a wankel of a job.

Perhaps you should seek guidance from the droning pedant that bored it the first time.

Clearly, once it's been bored, there isn't a great deal to be...ZZZzzzzz....
