Very nice one.

There was a good one on the Onion a few months ago (still pretty relevant topic though):

Pope Vows To Get Church Pedophilia Down To Acceptable Levels

Love to all

If Blair want's to consort with a man who protected paedophiles why shouldn't he. In fact they might as well bring in Garry Glitter too. The pope already has a GlamRock outfit, just change the mitre for a guitar. I wonder if Tony is any good on drums? This could be the best tour ever, for all three of them.

Blair's a guitarist, actually. At university he sang in a band called "Ugly Rumours". Which is quite a good name for a Catholic band nowadays ...

I approve of this proposal. Combining the two events will save us a fortune in rotten groceries! ;)

I've been thinking a comemorative release of "Leader of the Gang I Am" should be considered for the visit anyway although it was pointed out that would creat royalties for Gary Glitter so might need some subtle changes (Fuhrer of the gang maybe or a latin version)

Like every good joke, it's all the funnier for having a kernel of truth.

I was thinking Leader of the Gang also, it's a sublime fit for the pope. Subtle change huh. Hmmmmm..

I have it. What about "Peado of the Gang"?

Don't give me any of the bad taste bullshit either, your all singing it in your heads.

In the past there have been successful campains to get a specific song to number one in the download chart to make some kind of political point. Might I suggest 'House of Fun' by Madness, a song about connies which appear to be the Catholic equivalent of Kryptonite. Or perhaps 'Take a bow' by Rhianna a song that contains the words 'Don't tell me your sorry when you're not, baby when you know you're only sorry you got caught.'

So, are they going to arrest Pope during his visit? I know it is not to do topic but I´d like to know.

I would like to know who advised Blair not to convert to Roman Catholicism while still Prime Minister and exactly why?
