Andrew Ian Dodge is apparently “Baarking mad,” judging by his title for the 363rd Carnival of the Vanities, and indeed I’m about to go mad looking for some way to come up with my usual excessively-cute description. Believe me, I looked; I looked everywhere between Barking, Essex and Baar, Switzerland, which is way over 363 miles, and, says Google Maps, a seven-day walk. By the seventh day, I would need at least a day of rest, a notion sort of consistent with the findings of the Council of Laodicea, which established Sunday as the Christian Sabbath, way back in, oh, 363.
