The little Polack has many steep folds of skin. He is minute, solemn, and without his tall hats he is only man--and he is died. For 16 hours I bake like hot ziti in the sunshines hoping to eagerly spy briefly the Polack who is daddy of faith-havers. In line, loyal Romans trade water, feed each other gelatos, and pray God’s clouds to remember the dead Polack. The Polack, if you must have the know, be Papal Gianni Paulo ii, who killed the world’s Communists and told the masses to let everyone keep life. I stand upright for hours in a grope with a grandmother, six teenager boys and girls, a Czecho fireman. We stand in line to make love for il Papal, who told us vibrantly to make love for the whole world when he was a live man. Our love is televisioned to the masses of the earth, the heathen and the Christ’s people. The millions are draped in lines around the Vatican to show the world how Catholics make visible love for their dead Polack, who is a man only, but also God’s hard rock. We need to be rock-like hard for the Lord’s love, even if the difficult world makes us to feel limp. What today can you do to be in Christ’s picture? Give love to an old man or woman. Take off your clothes for the poor. Or, if in a Roman line wishing to see the dead Papal, let an old lady sit on you, share your meat with teenagers, listen to a Czecho fireman whine about dead Communists. We are all shriveled old Polacks—but we can all wear giant pointy hats in our life dailys. Lord bless you and your world.

Oprah Winfrey Elected Pope
Poperah I Will Lead Catholic Church into Age of Spirit Journaling, Upbeat Celebrity Banter
Vatican City—In a surprise move today, the Catholic College of Cardinals retired Pope John Paul II and elected Oprah Winfrey as Supreme Pontiff, officially dubbing the new head of the Roman Catholic Church Pope Poperah I. The popular talk show host accepted the position over the phone from Harpo Studios in Chicago before whisking off to Vatican City in her private jet. Though only in office a few hours, Poperah has already replaced the traditional papal throne with a comfortable love seat. At the end of her first mass, which included a homily by John Travolta, parishioners were directed to look under their pews where a Roomba Floor Vac and a tub of Decleor Vitaroma Body Sumptuous Anti-Aging Body Cream awaited them. Poperah’s Book Club announced City of God as its first selection and Dr. Phil was pronounced Blessed, the first step on the road to sainthood. Critics claim that the College of Cardinals elected Oprah, who is neither Catholic nor a male priest, technically disqualifying her from the papacy, in order to get new cars. “If Poperah wants to give me a tricked out Mazda 6 with hub cap spinners and ground effects, I will accept it as the Lord’s will,” says Cardinal Gianni Andretti, who led the movement to elect Poperah I. “And of course God will always ride shotgun.”
