Get a Grip on Yourself

This from the Press's infantile, it's purile and it's not clever, but it is a little bit funny.

Name change for Little Dicker chapel
The pastor of Little Dicker chapel has changed its name because too many "depraved" minds found it funny.
Pictures of men - many of them exposing themselves - outside the chapel have been winging around the internet and between camera phones.
Pastor Terry Brinkley has decided to rename it the Golden Cross Chapel after the East Sussex hamlet where it's based, reports the Daily Telegraph.
He says so many jokers were flocking to have their picture taken outside the chapel that they were clogging the narrow local lanes.
Mr Brinkley said: "We thought it better to change the sign's wording to Golden Cross Chapel in order to reduce the incidents of both private and commercial vehicles visiting the site to take lewd photographs."
The chapel, which opened in 1813, was originally known as Dicker Independent Chapel but, in 1838, a much bigger chapel was built two miles away at Lower Dicker.
The original one at Golden Cross then became known as Little Dicker Chapel.
One resident said: "It is playground humour, but it always brought a smile to my face as I drove past."

The Stranglers, easy for a change.
Too many depraved minds indeed.
