This just in ...

Ruth Gledhill of The Times of London is reporting the somewhat tragic news that the Archbishop of York's Christmas Tree Ornament has indeed sold out.

It appears that 200 were commissioned for sale at the York Minister Bookshop and then within minutes of going on sale were completely sold out. Zip. Not one left. Not even for the Archbishop of York himself, who, alas, was unable to acquire one for his own tree (note to self: check eBay). Looks like he'll have to go with this one instead.

However, we are pleased to report that all is not lost. The Official Archbishop of Canterbury Teddy Bear is still in full supply (note to self: put on BB's Christmas Wish List) at the Canterbury Cathedral Bookshop. We must say we are quite relieved. At least no one is going to prison over that.

On the other hand, Anglican culture can't produce anyone like Achmed:

The Prison bit: sobers one immediately while preparing lessons. Maybe I can turn these leftover teddy bear heads into Christmas ornaments. . .
