The famous Derbyshire vicar, renowned worldwide for assisting the village of Eyam to resist the plague, also developed a technique for shunting below the diagonal whilst still in spoon. Closely related to the Plague variation – Old Swan, Aldgate East, Finchley and Puddle Dock – Mompesson spotted the incongruity between [Smith's Rule]? and the cunning [Vicar's Slice]?. Developing the theme implied by this incongruity, the ploy is usually presented as a fait accompli via Rotten Row, Green Park, Chalfont and Latimer with Canada Water as the final coup de grâce.
