We’re putting a floor in here, people! You thought this stuff just builds itself? See you on Tuesday afternoon (if we don’t run out of lumber).

That’s the real story. I now return you to the other story, courtesy of the Catholic Herald in the UK.

The Vatican press office has said the conclave to elect the successor of Pope Benedict XVI will begin on Tuesday.

“Cause the fellas will be done with construction, and the electrician will be done too.”

St. Joseph knows…

UPDATE:

Joe Six-Pack has his moments. They’re rare, but he does have them. :)
