Suddenly Saintly

April 3, 2009

New Pope Joe Ratzinger is pushing for the beatification of Pope Classic, John Paul II. Trouble is, there needs to be a miracle associated with him in order get the process moving. And PRESTO! A miracle is found. A man in Cleveland got a bullet to the head and, while he was in the hospital recovering, he was given some novelty beads that Pope Classic cast a spell on, and he … continued to recover. Must be a miracle!

The Vatican is currently investigating this alleged miracle (using their patented Miracle Detector, no doubt).

All the same, that’s pretty damn convenient. At the moment a miracle was needed to be attributed to John Paul II, one turns up. Funny how that stuff happens.

Sometimes I have more respect for three card monte dealers. At least that takes some slight of hand.
