Friars and Flowers

These friars were behind on their belfry payments, so they opened up a small florist shop to raise the funds. Since everyone liked to buy flowers from the men of God, the rival florist across town thought the competition was unfair. He asked the good fathers to close down, but of course, they would not. He went back a second time and begged the friars to close. They ignored him. In desperation, he asked his mother to go and ask the friars to get out of business. They ignored her too. So, the rival florist hired Hugh MacTaggart, the roughest thug in town to “persuade” them to close. Hugh beat up the friars and trashed their store, and told them he’d be back if they didn’t stay closed. Terrified, they did so-thereby proving (ready?) that Hugh, and only Hugh, can prevent florist friars.
