Pretty much so. :lol: When I look at that list, St David suddenly seems inadequate. ;)

Is St David the patron saint of dragons? :?

Good point - if syphilis can have a patron saint, why can't monsters? I'll take on the job if no-one else is willing, although I do draw the line at Gnomes.

I can't fault your logic. Although I think being dead is one of the qualifications for being a patron saint . . . :think:
