A savvy Pope visits America

September 28, 2010 at 3:52 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

The Pope and Nancy Pelosi are on the same stage in Yankee Stadium in front of a huge crowd.

The Pope leans towards Mrs. Pelosi and said, “Do you know that with one little wave of my hand I can make every person in this crowd go wild with joy? This joy will not be a momentary display, but will go deep into their hearts and they’ll forever speak of this day and rejoice!”

Pelosi replied, “I seriously doubt that with one little wave of your hand? Show me!”

So the Pope backhanded the b*tch!!!

AND THE CROWD ROARED & CHEERED WILDLY!

Kind of brings a tear to your eyes, doesn’t it?

THE NEWS

Odd news from around the world

Another hero dog: “A family’s foster dog saved a one-year-old child from a rattlesnake attack by taking a bite to the face. Darryl McArthur of Austin, Texas, fosters up to eight boxers at a time, feeding them and taking care of them before the dogs are rehomed. Last week, he was grilling dinner in his backyard, when he noticed his one-year-old son Dillon and the dogs playing near a rattlesnake. Vandy, a female boxer who had been living with the family for a month, jumped between Dillon and the poisonous snake. Mr McArthur killed the creature with a shovel, but noticed that Vandy did not escape unscathed. “My wife saw Vandy’s eye swell up a little bit, and then her jowl started swelling up. Then we contacted Austin Boxer Rescue,” Mr McArthur said. Fortunately, Vandy made it to help just in time for her bite to be treated, and went home soon after with the family.”

Belgium experiments with mystical “full moon” beer: ” Full moons are often associated with tides, insanity and creatures like werewolves, but it turns out they’re also good for brewing beer. In Peruwelz, a small, sleepy town in southern Belgium, a family-owned brewery has produced its first batch of specialist beer brewed by the light of a full autumnal moon. “We made several tests and noticed that the fermentation was more vigorous, more active,” explained Roger Caulier, the owner of Brewery Caulier, which began in the 1930s when his grandfather started selling homemade beer from a handcart. “The end product was completely different, stronger, with a taste lasting longer in the mouth,” he said. The full moon speeds up the fermentation process, shortening it to five days from seven, which adds extra punch to the beer without making it harsh, according to connoisseurs.”

Man dials British police emergency line over cat in his kitchen: “A panicked man called a police emergency line for help because there was a cat in his kitchen in just one of thousands of inappropriate calls. The call to Britain’s 999 line starts with the man, saying: “There’s a cat in my kitchen I don’t know how to deal with him.” The bemused operator asks “You’ve got a what in your kitchen?”, and the man responds: “A cat, cat, cat.” Operator: “So there’s no emergency? it’s just that there’s a cat in your kitchen? Man: “I need to sleep. It’s in my, my home.” Operator: “This is not a police matter. We’re not going to remove a cat from your house. “If you just go into the kitchen, shoo the cat out the back door, it will leave, alright?” The call details were released by Gloucestershire police, who said it was one of more than 4500 inappropriate calls this year, the BBC reports.”

Pentagon destroys thousands of copies of Army officer’s memoir to protect state secrets: “Thousands of copies of an Army Reserve officer’s memoir were pulped, not burned, after they were bought up by the US Defence Department (DOD) for fear they contained classified information that could threaten national security. Leaked copies of the book were reportedly being sold for up to $1000, Fox News Channel reported. The author said he was notified of the Pentagon’s purchase Friday: “Someone buying 10,000 books to suppress a story in this digital age is ludicrous.” A second printing of the book has incorporated some changes sought by the US government, leading to some text – from words to entire paragraphs – being blacked out.”

Iconic Cold War plane will be grounded unless owners can raise £400,000: “Soaring into the sky with its engines booming, this may be the mighty Cold War Vulcan bomber making its last flight. The former RAF bomber, the last airworthy plane of its type, is shown at an airshow at Coventry Airport in aid of the Help for Heroes military charity at the weekend. But the plane – which was in active service from 1960 to 1984 and is one of the greatest achievements of British aerospace-engineering – will not be able to fly again unless its owners raise £400,000 by the end of October for costly maintenance to ensure it passes safety tests. Its owners, the Vulcan To The Sky Trust, worked for eight years to return the plane to the skies for the nation in 2007, helped by donations”
