Supping with your humble Devil

Thanks to Croydonian for this variation on the old quote.
"Therfore bihoueth hire a ful long spoon that shal ete with a feend"

One of the more readily understandable quotes from Chaucer, and apparently the first use in English of the devil sup spoon quote.

I can think of a couple of traitors who would need a very, very long spoon indeed. And immunity to a huge cocktail of deeply painful and deadly poisons...

Have you had a gawk at this remarkable likeness? I must admit, it took me rather by surprise. It would explain something about Hilton (A not P).
