A Blackpool man has admitted he will 'look a bit of a twat' over the Easter weekend as, unlike everyone else, he won't have a cross to bear.
'I know it's said we all have our cross to bear,' said Jim Parker (56), 'but to tell you the truth, I haven't. I don't have a trouble in the world and nothing really bothers me. People have already started to look at me a bit funny.
'I'm going to look a bit of a twat over Easter if I don't find a cross or something to bear,' he said.
Mr Parker's parish priest said he personally would find the thought of not having a cross to bear, especially at Easter, quite a burden to bear.
