Was It the Pope—or the Cute Beatle?
Posted on Oct 17, 2007
No offense to those Catholics who were heartened by the prospect of Pope John Paul II’s image appearing in a commemorative bonfire in Poland last April, but the UK’s Times Online has helpfully offered some other possibilities as to who else, besides the departed pontiff, may have materialized in that mystical blaze.
But now, after minutes of painstaking research, Comment Central’s Ludicrous Superstitious Nonsense Unit can reveal that the miracle was far greater than it seemed.
The Pope was not the only person who as the photographer said “had made many pilgramages during his life and was still making them in death”. Paul McCartney, Elvis Presley and Jimmy Connors have all also appeared in the bonfire.
Macca, is that you?
