Not Long To Go

Follow-up to The Bashmore Pope Sweepstake from The Land of the Bashmore

Yes that's right ladies and gentlemen…It's not some bad taste April Fools joke…the Pope is about to hop skip and a jump it out of here folks

And as everyone and I mean everyone in the media is aware; attention will be shifting to The Bashmore Pope Sweepstake to see who is going to claim the prize of a money cant buy…

  • Pope For a Month

  • A Ride in the Pope Mobile

  • And a Hamper of food…containing a vintage bottle of Blue Nun (which I hear was the particular kind of lady that tickled ol' JP's fancy!)

Award ceremony to follow as soon as I get confirmation off Sky News…as soon as they stop News Flashing every chuffing bit of information they get

  2. I was far too optimistic in my predictions.

  3. Nooooo!

    Come on, lad – hang on 'til Whit for ol' Danny Boy! You have no idea how much I want to take the Popemobile out for a spin! And eat a hamper of food.

    Is there a runner-up pri- hang on, that's not gonna work…

  4. Reading are still on course for the play offs, which must be a sign that he's gonna hold on til then

  5. Well, whoomp – there it was. Shacka-lacka.

    I propose a new sweepstake: who'll be the next Pope? My money's on Ratzinger. You can fight it out for Murphy-O'Connor and O'Brien but good luck.

  6. How does one apply for the job? Presumably in a world of equal ops not being a Catholic won't count against me?

  7. If equal ops applied to the conclave, I'd be a more of shoo in.

    My hair pink, just like Mary's was.

  8. I'm told any Catholic man can become Pope, which is why I'm backing Paul "Bono" Hewson. The race for the Vatican starts…

  9. It might a stretch for our great friend Bono: the job requires one to be righteous on the behalf of more people than one's self.

  10. I think the official reason from the Vatican for not allowing bono to take over is…and i quote:

    "Bono is a wanker

  11. [ahem] Just a little note to glory: I totally called Ratzinger. I win this round!

  12. But nobody expects, um, the prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith! His chief weapon… etc.
