Chapter: English Literature During The Middle Ages
The Friar is apparently the greatest friar to ever wear the cloth. He's jolly, well-spoken, and everyone seems to love him. Of particular note, according to Chaucer, is that he's the master of confession. Indeed, no man is his equal in hearing people confess their sins. He's an easy man, and absolves their problems gently, leaving the confessors feeling just peachy.
It strikes me as silly that someone could be the "best" at something like confession, but if Chaucer says so, who am I to argue
More fun facts about the friar: he sings like an angel, is as strong as any other champion, knows every tavern in every town, and is well acquainted with each good barmaid. Make of that what you will.

Lit Brick is a comic started by Jodie Troutman in an effort to read the entire Norton Anthology of English Literature. Having eventually succeeded in that goal, it now features comics about all manner of random literature. And yeah, they're all pretty dumb.
