Subject: Re: Christmas... something ( 2 of 4 )

It was the Utterly Utterly Merry Comic Relief Christmas Book, about 12 years ago. I edited it. It had contributions from me, from Richard (4 Weddings and a Funeral) Curtis, Terry Jones and a whole bunch of comedy luminaries. It was for Comic Relief to raise money for famine relief. We sold 500,000 pretty fast, and then we were attacked by the church for one item about the Nativity, told from the point of view of one of the sheep. They threatened to sue us for blasphemy. Which is a pity - we could have sold many more copies and relieved a lot more famine if it hadn't been for the church.
