VATICAN-POPE-AUDIENCE

 

 

PopeWatch gets lighthearted for a Saturday morning.  Galloping illiteracy hits the Vatican!  6000 medals commemorating the new reign of Pope Francis have been withdrawn because the name “Iesus” was spelled “Lesus”.  Four medals were sold before the mistake was noticed, and they will now be hot collector’s items.  One wag blames the Lesuits for the mistake.

Ignorance, Sheer Ignorance

  The Left is becoming a stronghold of ignorant yahoos:   Just outside downtown Dunn, N.C., a historic antebellum-style house honors Maj.

Hattip to commenter Dale Price.  My motto has always been:  “Slay all the Lunies, and let God sort ’em out!”

Deep State? What Deep State?

Surprise!:     Who would have thought that, this deep into the Russia collusion probe, we’d be learning about yet another dossier

  1. Since the letter “J” did not come into use until the 1500’s – credit given to a monk – in late Latin the letter ‘L’ was used and in ancient Latin the letter ‘I’ was used, So technically using late Latin it is spelled correctly.

  2. I can’t beleive I wasted 2 minutes of my life reading this childless, pointless article…and another minute commenting. Very annoyed!

  3. I didn’t blame you. I clearly blame myself for wasting time.

    (Maybe you want to say I’m not welcome on your blog- in which case, say so.)

    I saw your article linked on Pulp It. Read it, then become thoroughly confused at what point you were making or implying by showing a picture of Pope Francis looking at his watch, then a misprint on a coin.

    What IS your point Donald? You usually have one, otherwise I’m sure you don’t like wasting a precious moment of your time on pointlessness.

  4. (Maybe you want to say I’m not welcome on your blog- in which case, say so.)

    I’d guess he was using humor and manners to subtly indicate that complaining about someone saying a thing you thing unworth the time to read, and then posting to complain about it, is foolish.

    I can see how those three points would get past you, though.

  5. Blogging and humour is great. I guess you second guess the humour from a blogger who consistently complains about the Pope. Then you question whether its fun or actually a jibe disguised as fun.

    Also if funny is your point, I guess do it indiscriminately- like posting a picture of Emeritus Pope Benedict sneaking a cigarette during WYD in Sydney. That’s funny.

    Don’t pick and choose your humour. Just saying….

    Ps Foxfier – you’re hilarious. I guess you think so too.

  6. “Then you question whether its fun or actually a jibe disguised as fun.”

    Humor is often in the eye of the beholder, but I think the humor in the post was pretty obvious, at least it was obvious to everyone one else that commented.

    “Ps Foxfier – you’re hilarious.”

    I can tell you are new to the blog, Ez. It is always a mistake to wish to mix it up with Foxfier, who has a true talent for combox give and take.

  7. Humour is in the eye of the beholder- as in you behold Pope Francis to be a butt of your joke. Ok get it, thanks for clarifying. Totally respectful for a grown man. Ill see if I can find a funny pic of PJPII and PEB to link to.

    Re: Foxfier, that’s your cue Donald to him, to say unleash the dog. Is he your Rottweiler then.

    Apparently, you’ve been reading a much different blog than this one.

    *blush*
    Not sure if that’s from being flattered or embarassed…. ah well.

    Re: Foxfier, that’s your cue Donald to him, to say unleash the dog. Is he your Rottweiler then.

    That’s new, usually folks trying to get a reaction call *me* a dog. Sort of.

  9. Yes Simcha Fisher is very funny. Donald Scarey Clarey..still figuring it out here.

    Foxfier, it was you that I attributed to being the Rottweiler. I know, wow, too many compliments in one day. You must be chuffed.

  10. Foxfier, it was you that I attributed to being the Rottweiler.

    You might want to check your pronouns, then– there’s a reason I’ve got a fox-girl in a cheerleading outfit for an icon, and it’s not because I like cheesecake.

    Also, if you were trying to call me a Rottweiler, then presumably you meant to say:
    “Foxfier– what’s your cue, Donald, to him; to say ‘unleash the dog.’ Is he your Rottweiler, then?”
    Or, a bit less convoluted: “‘Foxfier’? What’s your unleashing cue for him, Donald? Is he your Rottweiler?”

    Finally, seeing as the Pope with whom I feel the most kinship was also frequently called a Rottweiler, your barb missed.

  11. Foxfier, It is with great affection that I call you Donald’s Rottweiler. If you re-read my comment, I did predict you would be chuffed. But, don’t assume that you automatically are anywhere near being in the same league as Pope Emeritus Benedict. I’m sure he doesn’t split hairs.

    Foxfier thankyou for the lesson in…I dont know, is that American English grammar, English English grammar or Australian English Grammar?

    Micha, I didn’t promise any incriminating photos of Pope Francis. You can ask Donald for those. Donald, are you getting a cut for posting them..?

    But if you’re holding your breath Google Pope Benedict smoking. The Malboro man. haha. I’d rather not link to anything by the Huffington Post. Especially on a conservative-blog-that’s-not-conservative-with-its-“humour”…barraboom!

    Oh gosh, I can’t help myself. I should stop getting suckered into pointless debate. I hope someone is laughing…at least…somewhere.

    God Bless the Pope. Francis that is. Pope Francis to you.

  12. Not grammar. Clarity and word choice, like not confusing “he” for “she” or “that” for “what”– with some suggested punctuation, since the jumble of words otherwise was jibberish.

    It seems your reading comprehension is as amazing as your sense of humor.

  13. I mixed “he” with “she”? “That” for “what”? Didn’t anyone teach you to be sincere in debates. Sincerity- a basic human virtue. Try it.

    If my reading and writing comprehension is poor, why are you commenting back to me. Sincerity-again, give it a go.

    Like I said, I consider myself to have a good sense of humour; Micha was funny.

    But this post borders on…I don’t know…jibes at expense of the current Vatican administration …because this blog and some of this blog fans don’t like the current Pope. It’s no secret.

    Unless this blog, along with some of this blogs fans refute/deny/clarify the fact that they don’t like this Pope- my point stands.

  14. “Sincerity”– you keep using that word; I do not think it means what you think it means.

    As Donald already indicated– I’m rather tenacious, for good or ill.

    It is rather interesting that you’ve done nothing to refute my original observation that subtly, humor and manners are beyond you, and have added “mildly incoherent” to the list.

    …because this blog and some of this blog fans don’t like the current Pope. It’s no secret.

    That’s an even more scurrilous accusation than your notion that I’m insincere.
