How's your Father?

Irish Catholic priest caught snorting coke through a rolled-up tenner in a room containing Nazi memorabilia? As a friend pointed out, surely this is just the plot of an episode of Father Ted?

Speaking of which, the recent death of Frank Kelly - best known as the boozy and cantankerous Father Jack in the sitcom but actually a seasoned veteran of screen and stage - has been commemorated by Jim'll Paint It at the request of James Sheppard, who had said he "would love to see Father Ted’s peaceful 18 years in heaven being disturbed by the arrival of Father Jack being chased by glasses-stealing crows".

(Thanks to Matt for the link.)
