Me: Did you see the guy in Australia who says he’s Jesus Christ? He has a girlfriend he says is Mary Magdalen. He said the last time I came you crucified me. He is about thirty-three, rather good looking and charismatic. He is clean shaven, they invented electric razors in the last two thousand years. He has some followers, mostly middle aged, middle class rather well off American women. Why they follow him I don’t know, he is rather good looking. A Mills and Boon idea of religion. Why do they show that stuff on television, as a sort of freak show?
Michael: A freak show.
Me: Are there just as many nuts in Australia as everywhere else?
Michael: Just as many.
