Gothic tastes



26-year-old Lawrence Edmonds is a man with a taste for religion. In the last 13 months he has traveled 5,000 around England, licking 42 Anglican Cathedrals.

I know what you’re thinking, but Lawrence isn’t mad, at least not officially. This bizarre journey of his is the result of a bet two of his friends made at a pub, one night.

What, a bet to do something insane? ;-)

James - must have been a big bet. I'd pay up and write it off to experience.

How much of each cathedral does he have to lick? Just one tiny lick of each, or does he have to run his tongue over most of the stonework? I hope there is a book at the end of his travels. There are more unanswered questions here than a banking scandal.

Sam - maybe post lick, the cathedral has to be distinctly damp to the touch.
