|He might be a touch crazy, but|
Mr.Bishop knows how to build a castle!
We awoke this morning and both knew that we needed to keep moving, Ruth and Jerry are wonderful hosts, but the road was calling. We fired up Bessie (our beasts new name!) and headed to Bishops Castle. We climbed the towers, marveled at its size, and pondered at how one man could build such a thing. Then we noticed a funny little fellow off to the side of the site working to raise a log with a winch. He was so out of place with the rest of the people milling around, and were drawn to go speak to him. Despite the place being packed with people, no one was paying this fellow any attention, and he seemed equally drawn to us as literally he stopped working and watched us cut across the crowd as we approached him. "Howdy" he said, "Did you know the Free Masons are running the country?" We both knew we had found a new hero. It was of course, Jim Bishop, the castle builder. After a good 10 minutes of hearing about the plans for the castle, and how Michelle Obama practices witchcraft in the the white house, it happened. Jim was getting worked up in to a bit of a frenzy with our talk, and so he suddenly climbed atop the front end loader we'd been standing next too, cupped his hands and yelled to the crowd, "Obama works for Satan", and then proceeded to sing his hit song that went something like this:
"The banksters are stealing
from the sheeple
known as the people
they are all panksters
gang bang up the butt gangsters"
The song alone was quite good, but what made it truly great was him thrusting his hips and grabbing his crotch as he sang high above the crowd. What was the crowds reaction? You guessed it, nothing. No one did so much as glance at him. I don't know if we've all gotten too callused, or they were simply too scared. Either way, it was an amazing moment.
