Advise Thripple, Fripple and Cautel.

Thripple, Fripple and Cautel, three members of the Halifax nudist society decide to demonstrate in the central square topless with ‘Naked is Good’ tatooed on their chests. This outrages members of the local Christian society who happen to be meeting in the square at the time and a fracas ensues with a number of the Christian society yelling at the nudist demonstrators. The three topless men are arrested by Constable Costume. After their trial and conviction for breach of the peace it transpires that one of the jurors, Constable Clownes, had worked in the same district as Constable Costume and had briefly worked at the same police station. Another juror, Hermione Longstocking had worked as a secretarial assistant in the law office of the lawyer who is now the Crown Prosecution Service prosecutor for this case, Learned Arrow. Judge Hairless is a devout Catholic who at various points in the trial appears apoplectic and then seems to lose all interest and his attention wanders. During the course of trial the Judge at one point states that “morals are the very essence of civility” and that “strong opinions are best committed to print”. At certain points his eyes are closed in an apparent doze. Judge Hairless is also, extra-judically, a prolific author and has written in Theology Today, a Catholic advocacy periodical, interpreting the story of the Garden of Eden as an incitement to civility and to leaving behind all aspects of the state of nature. Last year Judge Hairless was the annual speaker at a fund raising dinner for Theology Today. In an interview on television five years before the trial, while still a working as a barrister, Judge Hairless had remarked that he is a sartorial enthusiast and that ‘clothes maketh man’ should be our motto.
