It’s time for my genial, insouciant self to crawl, red-eyed, out of the woodwork with a little light entertainment. A friend, mindful of my psychological welfare, introduced me to despair dot com. It felt like coming home.
Not that I’d be tempted to wear any of the foregoing on a T shirt, in other words, actually pay hard currency to advertise, but I did rather like the following…(captions mine)
POPE BENEDICT XVI ON ARRIVAL AT HEATHROW AND SUMMARY ARREST
‘I DEMAND JUSTICE (OR IF NOT, LET INJUSTICE BE IN MY FAVOUR)’
FROM AN ABUSED ALTARBOY’S DIARY CIRCA 1978
‘I EXPECTED TIMES LIKE THIS, BUT NEVER THOUGHT THEY’D BE SO BAD, SO LONG, AND SO FREQUENT.’
TRANSCRIPT OF FATHER BRENDAN’S ‘COSY CHAT’ WITH HIS SPIRITUAL ADVISOR
‘I DIDN’T DO IT, AND BESIDES, EVERYBODY ELSE WAS DOING IT AND IT SHOULDN’T BE FORBIDDEN ANYWAY.’
Enough ecclesiastical hammering. Here’s a nice picture instead.
