Integrated primary school classroom, Belfast. The P3s are having a Religious Education class.
Teacher: “Can anyone tell me about the holy trinity?”
Girl: “Well, miss, my daddy …”
Girl: “My daddy says …”
Girl: “… My daddy says that the holy trinity is ginger, garlic, and chilli.”
Teacher: “Very good Laura. But I was looking for something about religion. You know this is RE, not home economics.”
Girl.: “But Miss, my daddy says that Ken Hom told him so.”
Teacher: “right …”
Girl: “And he’s god. Ken Hom is god.”
