Overheard at the Water Cooler



(accompanied by respectfully raucous laughter)

"God, did you see the Pope on tv?"
"Christ! What'd they do, wheel him up to the window and move his chair side to side to make it look like he was waving?"
"Like a marionette!"
"I know! Jesus, let the guy die already. Maybe he did. Maybe that surgery was really taxidermy!"
"My God, let a fella rest in peace! He's earned it!"
"Well, they can't! They haven't figured out who's going to succeed him yet."
"Yah, well how much you wanna make a bet that once they do, he croaks within two weeks?"

Joke I heard today:

A: Did you hear they cancelled Easter?

B: What, no Easter this year?

A: No, I mean it's cancelled forever.

B: What happened?

A: Well -- they found the body.

Is nothing sacred?

No - should it be?

Although I guess you could argue that nihilists worship nothing, in which case it is, for them.

Easter, nihilism, and the Pope. This is why I love blogs! If everything was sacred we wouldn't have comedy, and there's nothing funnier than Vatican politics as an extension of the sanctity of human life as homage to the God who so loved us that he gave his only son only to be mixed in celebrations of chocolate rabbits and tie-dyed eggs. But the Pope rocks. He's 84 and even if you don't believe in that stuff, he's a fixture throughout the world. That's true power and belief. Nobody is that powerful except maybe Brittany Spears.

We should start a Papal Death Pool. Buy in for 5 bucks, pick a date - closest wins the pot.

Great play on words, Dr. Pat. I needed a laugh.
