Presuming Dr. Livingstone

Our Malawian pop-star pal Kenny, well-met in Canterbury, told us the tale of Dr Livingstone. This story was related over a pot of Early Bird in Simple Simons (now the Parrot).

The accuracy of the story cannot be confirmed, but anyroad, it goes thuswise:
Livingstone was a Scottish Missionary, a man with a great heart, and with the balls of an elephant. As a missionary, he was not hugely successful, being accredited with only one conversion to the Church. But as a hero amongst men, he was (as all heroes) uniquely spectacular.
