Do people on Twitter make jokes about news events? Is the Pope Catholic?

The Pope is hardly the first person to lose interest in their real job so soon after joining Twitter.

Now the Pope’s resigning? This horsemeat scandal is bigger than I thought.  [See?  I was right!  You heard it here first]
Deborah Orr
Oh, hang on. He’s just giving it up for lent.
Adam Hills
The Pope is resigning. He will soon be known as Ex-Benedict.
Simon Blackwell
Pope’s annual assessment obviously went really badly.

    Brilliant … the first one is my favorite – here … but I think the Findus Scandal is the main reason, good of you to dig out the real truth. Do we need a pope ???? And why not a female ????!!! Or is that a bit too much !!!!

      There are not even female priests in the Catholic Church: ergo female pope impossible.

          What about Pope Joan? She only got found out when she delivered her baby on a horse…hmm…looks like popes and horses are connected in more ways than one 🙂

            I have always thought that there is something iffy about the Catholic Church. *smile Maybe it’s the horse issues they have. On the other hand I think there is something iffy with all religions. They are all into something

    The Pope is to be commended for doing the right thing, I think. We often think older folks should turn in their driver’s lincenses. Well, the Pope has just turned his in.

    Rumour has it that there will only be one more pope:-

    I wonder who will replace him

    Ex-Benedict. Brilliant.


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
