This is a question The B3TA Confessional

With the Pope about to visit the UK, what better time to unburden yourself of anything that's weighing on your mind by posting it on the internet? Pay particular attention to the Seven Deadly Sins of lust, greed, envy, pride, posting puns on the QOTW board and the other ones. Top story gets to kneel before His Holiness's noodly appendage, or something

Few people know that John Fashanu spent a few years as a prison guard
... and in that position of power, became surprisingly popular with some of the inmates. One in particular.

This was in the days before civil partnerships, so when the inmate finally got out, they disappeared to whatever part of the world it was that allowed gay marriage in those days, returned, and lived happily.

But not ever after. Soon enough, things began to fall apart, but as the other partner was a serial offender and on parole most of the time, they couldn't travel back to the same country they were going to get the marriage dissolved.

So they went to a pheasant shoot, talked to the gamekeeper, and he said he didn't mind lending them one of his boys for a little while.

Adultery being grounds for a divorce, the young estate worker did his duty for both of them, and the marriage could then be declared null, by means of the Beater Con-Fash Annul.

(I think it needs work, personally).

Not bad. Points for creativity
Although it might have been more believable if you'd said Justin Fashanu, as he was famously a bumder

Never heard of him. Thanks for the pointer though.

I think it would have helped if I'd claimed to be the prisoner rather than write in the third person - then it would have had an element of confessional to it. Still, there's always next week.

As long as you don't ape the recent trend
And make your story next week "I confess - I always post my stories a week late"

Oh, I'm cheap
but not that cheap.

Darth in "knows about famous bumder" shocker!

I though
being a bumder was a prerequisite for being famous these days.

I write: (I think it needs deleting, personally).

And I do. What a ghastly overly-contrived pun!
