Sunday morning hymn: 'All things scabbed and ulcerous'

A hymn this bright Sunday morning from the pen of Eric Idle, sung to the tune of ... well, it should be obvious enough:

All things dull and ugly,
All creatures short and squat,
All things rude and nasty,
The Lord God made the lot

Each little snake that poisons,
Each little wasp that stings,
He made their brutish venom.
He made their horrid wings

All things sick and cancerous,
All evil great and small,
All things foul and dangerous,
The Lord God made them all.

Each nasty little hornet,
Each beastly little squid--
Who made the spikey urchin?
Who made the sharks? He did!

All things scabbed and ulcerous,
All pox both great and small,
Putrid, foul and gangrenous,
The Lord God made them all.


UPDATE: Speaking of God's beautiful creatures, the Creation Science Academy for Kids presents a short run down of God's Beatiful Creatures.
It is a beautiful universe that God has created for us and today we will take you on an adventure of learning. Some of these creatures are so strange that only someone as wise and almighty as God could have imagined them! Creatures like the Boto, the Candiru Fish, Arthropleura, and dof course the wonderful Giardia bacterium.
All part of 'God's great plan,' eh?

Classic Monty Python! You got me in the mood for listening to my Life of Brian CD now. :-D

"You are the Messiah, and I should I followed a few!"

That mob that followed Brian was pretty delusional, but that is nothing new really. That accurately describes all mystics.

Oh, and on the topic of mystics, I am reading Galt's speech about them at the moment, Peter. :-D
