And, finally, here are some completely gratuitous pictures of penises to annoy the sponsors and hopefully spark some sort of controversy. ibid.
Mrs Doyle: They were a bit obsessed with the old S-E-X. God, I’m glad I never think of that type of thing, Father. That whole sexual world. God, when you think of it it’s a dirty filthy thing, isn’t it, Father?
