Let me see.

I'm a professional Actor, appearing in a third rate unrehearsed school-kids nativity play. My dressing room is filled with sheep and angels <spit>, not to mention the fact that there is sheep dung in my make-up box. My flowers have been eaten, my hip-flask stolen and my career is going to pot before my very eyes.

Of course I want a bloody drink.

hears the comforting (and purely pastoral [Paranoid] ) voice of Chief Comic Shepherd, and scuttles back out on stage, confident that the CCS will defend her from those bent on evil against her flock.

Baaaaa

"Dear Wise Men.
I write to you with a sample of my handwriting, so's you can see deep into my character. My inseperable companion- my yappy imaginary poodle, Blossom, was born on February 30. What do her stars say about her?
I am sure you are busy now, and I am prepared to wait til after the Christmas rush for your reply.
With thanks

:To other wise man present: Tell me my good sir, what do you make of the conjuction of Saturn and Jupiter in Pisces? Is it as great an event as I foresee, or do you have an alternative explanation?

What should we do about this event? Do we need further guidance - maybe a further heavenly sign or do we consult the entrails of one of these sheep that seem to be all over the place?

Lessee .... hmmm....

Moon in the seventh house, Check.
Jupiter aligned with Mars, Check.

Hmmm. Signs indicate Big Happenings in the West.

Hmmm, i wonder where my esteemed colleagues are? We need to meet in the sweat lodge and seek a vision from our spirit guides.

[Shuffles into shadows at the back of the stage]

Amidst a swirl of dry ice and rapturous applause from the audience, the door backstage opens and in struts Mary, dressed somewhat differently to her accustomed blue. Most noticeable is the upper part of her costume, to which two Cornettos have been firmly attached. For tonight, as a Stars In Their Eyes special, the Virgin Mary is appearing as...... Madonna!

The Orchestra breaks into the opening bars of "Like a Virgin" as Madonna strides over to the microphone, gives a sultry look in the direction of the camera and begins to sing...


Ickly Jesus sweetly sleep, do not stir
We will lend a coat of sheepskin....

Spare Shepherd and Rowen stride onto the stage, to sing a song, deicated to the Lost Star of Bethlehem...

To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go
To right the unrightable wrong
To love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach that unreachable star!

This is my quest, to follow the star
No matter how hopeless, no matter how far
To fight for the right without question or pause
To be willing to pass into hell for a heavenly cause

la la la la

forget the rest of the words....

They slink off the stage looking silly....

Looks over at Sheep 1, wondering why that sheep's smiling like that.

Looks around to try to find the props table for those magic potions. Little to angels know that Rudolph has extraordinary hearing abilities.

You may think you can sing, but frankly, I can tell you, you haven't a hope in hell of making it into this band.

You're just wasting everybody's time here today - mine, and the other judges.

Right! I'm no wise man, but if someone doesn't clear those sheep off the stage NOW I will personally ask Herod's evil henchman to ensure that none of you are ever again in fit state to gaze at your own miserable navels, let alone entrails, be they bovine or sheepine. [Mad]
