Happy St Pinnock's day!

St Pinnock of Liskeard (also known as St Pinnock the
Flamboyant, St Pinnock the Pungent and St Pinnock the
Trouserless) is the patron saint of Milton Keynes,
Heligoland and headlice. He is also patron of nuisance
callers, PERL developers and the worried well. St Pinnock
is noted for the so-called Miracle of the Unwanted Cheese,
wherein he succeeded in making an entire village’s cheese
surplus disappear on a regular basis. He was canonised a
few years after his martyrdom at the hands of a group of
local dairy farmers following a dramatic fall in sales to
neighbouring communities. His feast day is July 15th
