The latest press release from the Vatican pictures the meeting of Pope Pelosi with the aging German theologian Joseph Ratzinger.
Pope Pelosi said of their meeting, “He is a very sweet man, who has done a lot to stop global warming. This is why he always wears white clothes–to show solidarity with the polar bears who, as my friend, Archbishop Al Gore says, are all dying because the snow is melting. He has also been a very good person because he helps the poor and I believe he also plays the piano…I think he may also have written some books. But I have not read them. Anyway, we had a nice time together and I told him how much I liked visiting Bavaria once and eating Black Forest Cake.”
Fr. Ratzinger commented, “I vish I could lock zat voman and Bishop Villiamson in ze same room and throw avay ze key.”
(picture the work of master Vincenzo)
ROFL! Thank you! And that’s why I so love Vincenzo (besides the fact he’s the first to jump in and pray for people…)
Ridiculously funny stuff. Much thanks for the post, Father.
LOL – I made a blog entry of my own about Ms. Pelosi yesterday. I call it: “Doing the Pelosi Shuffle”. http://catholicponderings.blogspot.com/2009/02/doing-pelosi-shuffle.htmlHey, if I didn’t laugh about it – I would definitely be crying…Thanks for the post. 🙂
Thanks, I couldn’t quite place that fellow standing next to Pelosi.
I like the blog’s name. Is it an echo of Diogenes who said, “Bury me on my head, for in a little while the whole world will be turned upside down?” Until (or while) that happens, thanks for keeping the ridiculous in perspective.
You could have re-used the title “Shrewsbury Abbey” for this post too. 🙂
Len, I didn’t know the quote from Diogenes. I like it. I was referring to Chesterton: the world is most often seen better when it is seen upside down.
This is hilarious – I’m linking to this at my blog.Thanks for the Friday laugh!
…WOW…Love the picture 🙂
“I didn’t know the quote from Diogenes. I like it. I was referring to Chesterton”Maybe he was paraphrasing Diogenes.

Ok, is that miter and chasabule from Episcopal “Bishop” Schori?
So grand to find fellow Catholics brave enough to display a measure of useful wit in these dire times. It can get lonely. Love this parody of Our Blessed Nancy of San Francisco. I’ve had a few go-’rounds with Her Holiness. Some of you might appreciate my Ode to Everyone’s Favorite Ardent Catholic. Enjoy, and keep up the good work, Father and friends:http://theransomnotes.blogspot.com/2009/02/ode-to-pelosi-in-honor-of-her-upcoming.html
So nice to see a woman wearing a hat in church again.
