No, seriously. We’re not making this up. From The Times:
‘An Italian comedienne [Sabina Guzzanti] who said that Pope Benedict XVI would go to Hell and be tormented by homosexual demons is facing a prison term of up to five years.
The joke may have gone done well with her crowd on the Piazza Navona in Rome, but not with Italian prosecutors. She is facing prosecution for “offending the honour of the sacred and inviolable person” of Benedict XVI. ‘
Well, luckily for us we don’t live in Italy. Or care what the Pope thinks. So may we take this opportunity to say that we think that the Pope is the head of a massive, global crime-syndicate who have garnered untold wealth by brainwashing millions into believing in an invisible man who lives in the sky, whilst protecting paedophiles within their ranks and paying not one cent of tax to anyone, ever? We can?
Why, thankyou. I think we will.
Yes but you’re missing the point that your statement is one of fact, whereas there’s no such thing as homosexual demons.
You’re fucking kidding.
Wait. No you’re not.
Ah for fucksake, what the fuck is this about? You can’t insult Ratzo because Mussolini said you couldn’t?
And there I was thinking Ireland was the only ridiculous, clergy-ridden banana republic in Europe.
Catlicks take the take for the dumbest XTIANS, mooselimbs are a close second
Feckin idgits the lot of em
Well I looked all over the last time I was in Hell and couldn’t find an single one.
Though that was the night Versace died…
Wait… the pope doesn’t live in Italy either! (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vatican_City)
The Times got this story wrong! It’s the Pope who is going to jail for insulting the world of comedy! Pope Benedict “Nazinger” Ratzinger XIII or whatever his stupid name is met a Chinese bloke in a pub who ceremonially presented him with bootleg DVDs of Peep Show, Reginald Perrin and Sir Henry at Rawlinson End. “The” Pope watched said DVDs and did not laugh once. The Comedians’ Guild are up in arms about this and he now faces an eternity in a comical prison. Apparently he has already been living in a humourless prison called “the Vatican City” so perhaps this is all for the best. Hilarious results ensue.
