Organ Humour
This story comes not strictly from a holy place, but does involve a very old air powered organ used for daily hymns at a young Prime's old school.
The size of the organ was, quite frankly, ridiculous in comparison to the assembly hall. Mighty grey pipes stretched up to the ceiling, through decades old intricate oak carvings, waxed and polished lovingly to form the pride center piece of the school.
This organ was located at the very front of the main school hall, in full view of all the students. It was a huge source of pride for the Head Master, an ageing hulk of a man with a fiery temper.

The 800 or so students had filed into the hall as usual for morning assembly and hymns, being congratulated on the school's triumphs and scalded for incidents of bad behavior, nothing unusual. Then came the time for the first hymn, a rousing number with a powerful opening chord. Organist at the ready, head teacher's chest swelling ready to lead the praise, the organ burst into life....

....and promptly fired out hundreds of ping pong balls the students had placed in the tubes the previous night.

I thought of trying this with my school's pipe organ.
Couldn't figure out how to get up to the pipes without a stepladder, though, and also realised that I was probably too much of a swot to go through with it.

We had thought of putting water and detergent in ours
but bottled at the thought of permenant damage. So we put the deputy heads mini on the chapel steps just before our final assembly.

The deputy head's vagina?

Robert J Collins
Am I the only one here to remember Bobby Collins discovering the hard way that the keys of the Hutchesons' Grammar School organ had been sellotaped together in pairs?
