    Since the strip is also going South….
    .

    Some friars were behind on their mortgage, (even friaries need money in this world) so they opened up a small flower shop just outside their friary (but still on the friary’s grounds) to raise the necessary funds. They blessed each bouquet sold, so the townspeople immediately began to buy flowers from the men of God believing them to be better than an unblessed bouquet.
    .
    The pre-existing flower shop owners of the town thought this kind of competition was unfair and asked the good friars to close down, but they would not and continued to siphon business away from the pre-existing shops.
    .
    The owners then petitioned the town council to rescind the friary’s business licence, but as the shop was located on land under the jurisdiction of the church there had never been a licence issued.
    .
    The owners tried another way. They got the families of the friars to write letters to the superior of the friary saying its flower shop was hurting the town and to please close. These letters were ignored.
    .
    Their next step was to seek a “cease and desist order” from the local courts. It was issued, but the friars appealed on the grounds of church immunity and won. They continued selling flowers to the detriment of the pre-existing shops.
    .
    Reluctantly (at the end of their rope and desperate) the pre-existing shops’ owners decided they must go outside the law. They hired a thug from the next town over, a particularly violent man who went by the name of, Hugh Smith. (His real name was Hugh Johnson but he used Smith as an alias.) As has been stated he was a violent man; under either name.
    .
    “Hugh Smith”, after demanding and receiving his payment in advance, beat up each and every friar and trashed their flower shop. He told them he’d do it again and again until they closed their business. In severe pain and terrified the friars finally decided to close the flower shop; thereby demonstrating the truth of that old saying:
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    “Hugh, and only Hugh, can prevent florist friars.”

    So, why all this business about Hugh’s last name, if it didn’t play a part in the groan-producng bit of paranomasia?

    After their flower shop failed, the friars tried to raise funds by opening a fish-and-chips stand. One day, a customer who was trying to be funny stuck his head into the kitchen and called to the cook, “Hey! Are you the fish friar?” The cook turned to him and replied, “No, I’m the chip monk.”
