Concert woe

Concert woe

Scandal, woe and calumny struck the otherwise genteel junior school carol concert last night.

The recital of a poem entitled "The Barn" - recounting the story of the animals in the stable where Baby Jesus was born - resulted in a near riot, cries of "Well, I never!" and hoots of laughter in the pews of All Saints Church when one line just sort of came out wrong.

The line in question being: "I'm sick of those clucking hens."

Kids, eh?
