Not MY Bishop!
Now, don't think for a minute that any bishop would EVER have such limited compassion, but I do love seeing this expression that was popular when I was a kid. I seldom see youth today rubbing their thumb and index fingers together. I doubt today's youth appreciate the nuance of the world's smallest violin. (If you have no idea what I'm talking about, then you are under the age of 30)
What is really strange is that the people that this is actually aimed will probably not even make the connection that they are being mocked.
(To be clear, I don't think a Bishop would ever say this to anyone...out loud.)
This cartoon is from a wonderful cartoonist named "Honest John" aka Jon Clark. I highly recommend his stuff.
