More erudite than thou

I asked The Weeble the other day if he knew anything about the religious views of Flann O'Brien, a great Irish humourist whom we both rather revere.

In the midst of a self-deprecating protestation of complete ignorance, he threw in the wonderful aside:

"Well, of course, he did have that Manichaean thing going on."

Ah, Weeble, you're one of the shining successes of the home schooling movement. (And your father, I take it, was an Encyclopaedia Britannica salesman?)
