I quite liked this one:

    Hi Kiles.

    [Off topic] Did you see this about Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales and his call to “do something” about homeopathy?

    [On topic] The Pope reckons he’s getting too old. Didn’t Noah live to be over 500 years, or something? The Pope’s only 85. He’s barely a teenager in biblical terms. Doesn’t God like the Pope as much?

    I’m excited because we’ll probably get a substitute pope who lets us watch movies.

    Are we sure the Pope is resigning, and not just giving it up for Lent?

    What do you call a Pope who resigns at breakfast time? Ex Benedict

    It’s only when the next Pope is revealed as a Horse that the full extent of their Machiavellian plan will become apparent.

    Now that Pope Benedict XVI has resigned, what is he going to do with all those gifts? (PICTURES)

    The Pope is stepping down. He will be remembered as a visionary who helped protect the church from gays, women, and poor people.

    Being “The Pope” means you are married to God. So, is this like a divorce?

    “‎”Benedict said in a statement today that he was retiring to spend more time searching for his Precious, which was stolen from him by the nasty Baggins.”

    Can we expect the Catholic change with the next Pope? I don’t really think so. Cardinal Marc Ouellet, formerly the archbishop of Quebec City, has the best odds of replacing Pope Benedict XVI, but he is an extremely conservative man who will definitely not want the Catholic church to change. He is expected to be a carbon copy Pope Benedict XVI.

      Let’s hope so. The more they show their evil, the more it becomes clear how corrupted they are.
