This idea has been haunting me for years and I've been restraining myself from sticking it on here because it's a bit peculiar, but in the light of Justin Welby's recent discovery it's all got too much and I'm just going to have to unburden myself.

It's basically just a toy model of an archbishop in full regalia around 25 cm long with a light bulb inside the mitre which is powered by pump action and a dynamo when you squeeze shut and let spring open the two halves of the hat bit.

Phew! Finally, I feel so much better now!

       [Nineteenthly], this is one of your 'crozier' ideas.

       What would such a shop sell, a “bishop”?

       // in the light of Justin Welby's recent discovery //   

       How was he discovered, by the way ? Archaeology, or some sort of expedition ?   

       It must have come as quite a shock to someone ... maybe looking in a locked cupboard, and then exclaiming "My God ! It's full of ... Justin Welby !"
