Prank Letter – Reply from Bishop Pat Buckley

July 23, 2007 at 12:02 am 1 comment

On Friday I posted this prank letter that I sent a few years ago to Bishop Pat Buckley, the Larne-based ‘unofficial chaplain’ to disaffected and alienated Catholics. Here’s the reply that I got from Bishop Buckley: >>>

Reply from Bishop Buckley

Dear John,

Thank you for your most unusual letter. Whatever else we might say, we must admire your unbounded energies!

Your main problem seems to be the contraceptive one. There is an old Celtic Potion to prevent conception. It was given to me by a rural Archdeacon.

You get a large saucepan and add:

  • The heart of a head of cabbage
  • The two hind legs of a hare Caught in March
  • 2 ozs black and 11/2 ozs white Pudding
  • 1/2 pint of Irish Mist Whiskey
  • 4 pints of spring water
  • 2 pigs testicles
  • 1/2 pint of dry altar wine

Boil the above for 2 hours. Strain and store the liquid in a bottle. Take two teaspoons last thing at night and first thing in the morning.

After one month, there is no chance of conception – even for a woman.

I wish you well in your active life.

Best wishes,

Pat Buckley

    My god, I’ve spent my life with the pill (and god have i repented for this ….) holding it and it’s small between my legs ….I’ve managed to prevent getting pregnant and wish to pass on this excellent advice which was initially passed on to me when i attended the convent school in lucan. to you all i recommend the buckets of sex with the pill held firmly if coqetishly between your slender moist thighs …. x
