CNN: Vatican Told Pope He Couldn't Work From Home

Non-invisible bank robber caught

"Never rob a bank thinking that you’re invisible when you’re not actually invisible.

Sadly for one man in Iran, he made just that mistake – and as a result, police in Tehran are hunting a fake sorcerer who convinced the man he was invisible and so could rob banks safely.

The man’s ill-fated heist attempt started to go wrong shortly after he entered the bank, as he started snatching money from the hands of customers. For some reason, rather than being terrified of the mysterious invisible poltergeist stealing their cash, the customers quickly overpowered the hapless thief.

‘I made a mistake. I understand now what a big trick was played on me,’ the man told the court, state-run newspaper Jam-e Jam reports. He explained that he had paid 5 million rials (just under £290) to a wizard imposter, who in return gave hims spells to tie to his arm. The sorcerer told him that they would make him invisible, and that he could then rob banks to his heart’s content."

Love the McCain translator.

If you had Britain’s most senior Roman Catholic cleric, Cardinal Keith O’Brien in the Pope Pool

You have already lost:

"O’Brien, has been accused of committing “inappropriate acts” in his relations with three priests and one former priest, the newspaper The Observer reported Sunday. The accusations, which date back to the 1980s, have been forwarded to the Vatican."

Whole article at:

"This Michelle Obama remote is the flame that will light a hundred outraged Fox News segments."

from Frank Conniff

Bumper sticker seen today: "Is it true or did you hear it on Fox News?"

Apple Tattooing

" Ediblegeography.com delves into the history of apple tattooing. The concept is simple. You place a stencil on the fruit so that part of the skin isn't exposed to the sun, leaving a permanent image when the stencil is removed. However, getting it right is time consuming, so it's not a practice commercial farmers are likely to adopt. Pity, since I'd much prefer an apple tattoo over those obnoxious stickers that all the supermarket apples have on them. See more images of tattooed apples at the Société Régionale d’Horticulture de Montreuil"
