Campanologist told off for holding ding-dong in belfry

OK I know that Campanology is really hand-bell ringing but couldn't resist reminding you of the old joke about the vicar who tied his knob to the bell rope and was tolled off.
Campanology covers all types of bell ringing, except when you go to hotel reception, there's no-one there and you lean on the bell until the angry receptionist turns up. That has a different name...
And all the bell ringers I've spoken to - oh alright, both the bell ringers I've spoken to - say they are bell ringers and not campanologists. They say it's only people who aren't campanologists who call bell ringers campanologists. I hope that clears the one up.
Thanks for all that. Now I feel really well and truly tolled-off.
I'll go back in my box and play with my dingaling...
