The Friar is a very busy man Pilgrims and you will have to be paitent with me, begging is quite time consuming and I am a very important man. Monk, you seem a bit tense, if you’ve anything to confess my door is open.
Anyway, Summoner I hope I didn’t hurt your pride too much, as you are a bit of a fornicator and there happened to be an immoral Summoner proving my sermon. As a Friar it is my duty to teach of good morals and good character, and greedy Summoners who serve falsehoods will in fact be condemned to hell in good time. There is no wrath like an angry woman and the old woman had such passion that the naughty Summoner was taken away. This Summoner was an adulterer, a robber, and he dabbled in witchcraft; in other words he was a sinner in the worst way.
Perhaps you will agree with me, Monk, as a holy man you must see that this Summoner had it coming to him. MY tale was both entertaining as well as moral. The Summoner does not fair so well in his rebuttal to me for as his falsity that a Friar should be carried off to hell is absurd. I may be a beggar but that is my duty, I certainly do not trick or steal my money I beg the right way in my designated area. Summoner’s would do well to take note of how moral and holy I am.
It seems to me that many of these tales that our fellow pilgrims have told have seem to have fallen off the moral path. It would do everyone good to obey the rules of the game and have some moral to each tale rather than to promote farting and burning arses. We should all remember why we are here and that is to complete this pilgrimage to Canterbury.
