Man embarks on a cathedral-licking tour

29 posts in this topic

Lawrence, 26, made his 5,000-mile pilgrimage to win a pub bet with a pal.

The 13-month tour took him across the country to cathedrals including Durham, Guildford, Derby, York, Winchester, Chelmsford and Lincoln.

English Heritage worker Lawrence, from London, now plans to carry on licking in Scotland, Ireland and Wales.

He said: “We’ve no idea why the bet was centred on licking cathedrals — it just was. I’ve tasted a lot of new places.”

That's what happens when you drink. Any way, I wish him luck...I suppose.

I'd think once you've tasted stone once..... :w00t: ....but alcohol surely has a way of bringing out the stoopid in folks.

My 6 yr old outgrew that.. She used to lick the windows, the odd fish tank here and there...Then turned 5 and never thought of it again.. I feel she just outgrown it..

I'd love to see the man from the article visit a hot desert or the Arctic..and lick a pole lol

I'm just glad, for his sake, that he wasn't drunk enough to say he'd lick the crosses on top of the cathedrals!

Sounds like a wonderful sightseeing trip .. Happy cathedral licking Lawrence :)

I wouldn't say this was done for fame (although 1 minute of fame is a side effect of this stunt), just a stupid bet between friends that was so absurd the loser thought the 'licker' would never go through with. The loser now has to run around naked in the winter.

Sounds like two great friends having a laugh :)
