Bishop Winnington-Ingram, preaching in Hyde Park, was heckled by an older man of the road:

‘What about St Paul then?’ he shouted. ‘He liked a drop of the good stuff, didn’t he?’

‘I don’t know,’ the Bishop replied, ‘but when I get to heaven I’ll ask him.’

‘And what if he’s not there?’ came back the heckler.

‘Then you ask him,’ the Bishop responded.
