Saint Simeon
Geelong, Victoria, Australia
 
 
Simeon the Holy Fool was a Christian monk, hermit and saint of the 6th century A.D. He is considered to be a patron saint of all holy fools and also puppeteers. (Puppeteers?!?! Why do puppeteers need a saint??)

Arriving at the city gate, he found a dead dog on a dungheap, tied its leg to the rope around his waist, and entered the city dragging the comatose canine behind him.

During the church services, he threw nuts at the clergy and blew out the candles. In the circus, he wrapped his arms around the dancing-girls and went skipping and dancing across the arena. In the streets, he tripped people up, developed a theatrical limp, and dragged himself around on his buttocks. In the bath-house, he ran naked into the crowded women's section. On solemn fasting days he feasted riotously, consuming vast amounts of beans – with predictable and hilarious results. In his lifetime, Simeon was regarded as a madman, as an unholy scandal.

I can picture in my mind a world without war, a world without hate. And I can picture us attacking that world, because they'd never expect it.

Thanks for sending through Dota. I've heard it's addictive. Gotta wait till it downloads before I know.
