[10GBT] Barass nudges consensus

The friars were behind on their belfry payments, so they opened up a small
florist shop to raise funds.  Since everyone liked to buy flowers from the
men of God, a rival florist across town thought the competition was
unfair.  He asked the good fathers to close down, but they would not.  The
rival florist went back and begged the friars to close.  They ignored
him.  So, the rival florist hired Hugh Barass, the roughest and most
vicious thug in town to 'persuade' them to close.  Hugh beat up the friars
and trashed their store, saying he'd be back if they didn't close up shop.

Terrified, they did so, proving that:
        "Hugh, and only Hugh, can prevent florist friars."
