I saw that go up within an hour of the announcement..lolol I wonder if they'll receive wagers from the Vatican? they'd have a better idea who to place any money on ;-)

someone has just started a thread - not happy with the fact that people are placing odds on who will be the next Pope - sounds good to me

Sylvia please read reported as revealed, as in put in print NOT as in RR

*sighs*

taking a quick look before we leave


Sue posted ...............


supercrutch Report 12 Feb 2013 08:08

I don't seem to have to justify my actions as Sylvia has reported part of the original again. Now fellow members can decide for themselves. By all means report something truly offensive to the RC church but none of the above fall into that category.

----------------------------

for the record ...............


I did NOT RR any posts on this thread as Sue suggests


I said I would not, and I have not.



so ......... please no further black marks against me.

Can we have Prof Brian Cox please....just for errrrrrr.....well you know...the Eye Candy aspect ;-)

**edit** i know he's got a brilliant mind but in this show his scientific knowledge isn't really needed lol

So we have:

Eldrick to test his faith
Simon Cowell to check his acappela tone when performng a Gregorian Chant
Gok Wan perhaps for fashion advice?

Anyone else :-D

AnnCardiff Report 12 Feb 2013 14:11

You're so right Joy - Eldrick would sort the wheat from the chaff sure enough

there was/is no malice toward the Pope - and I absolutely love having a laugh about most things - and idea of Pope Idol appealed to me so much :-D :-D :-D

Reading back it appears my mention of blancmange caused a bit of eye brow raising...the reason i made the comment is that it is an *in joke* from years ago on here between Sue and I..which is why I addressed my comment specifically to her....didn't expect very many others to get it....just thought I'd clarify that. lol.

I'm glad others can see that there was no malice meant by the *pope idol* thing....I joke about pretty much everything where I can...it's the way I roll....if I'd have mocked the man himself then I could kind of see the point in the furore....a bit....but I didn't...and nor did anyone else..

Hoping someone takes sue up on her suggestion re the announcement....my thinking cap is firmly on lol
