Pastor Barrie Halliday the self-proclaimed bastion of all things good and Protestant shocked his handful of fans today when he revealed that he has been diagnosed with an extremely rare and aggressive form of stupidity. Pastor Halliday said the stupidity was at such an advanced stage when it was discovered that there is very little that can be done.
Those close to the Pastor first noticed symptoms of his condition in the early 1990’s when he first entered the realm of political commentary with his long time friend and deceased Willie Frazer, but no one voiced their concerns for his alarming stupidity levels, hoping they would fade away with age.
Pastor Barrie told Newry Spud:
“Perhaps the most troubling aspect of my diagnosis is the fact that this strain of stupidity is highly contagious and there is a very real possibility that I could infect anyone I come into contact with.”
The Pastor’s best friend and confidant told us:
“We just kept allowing him to continue, which actually made his condition worse. His stupidity grew and became malignant. At this point, Pastor Barrie can’t even speak or smile without betraying the depths of his stupidity.”
