Thus I see blue moon in the heavens, as Nanny (or rather a very small part of Nanny) has shown that she has a sense of humour.
Nanny, or rather her chums in the Foreign Orifice (FO), has issued a rather amusing internal spoof memo relating to what should be done with the Pope when he visits the UK later in the year.
Seemingly a Papal Visit Team has been set up (money and time well spent!), to ensure that the Pope's visit goes smoothly and without any embarrassment.
Therefore, in order to ensure maximum yield from the visit, the bright young things in the FO decided to imagine an "ideal" visit (from a satirical point of view), and accordingly drafted a memo.
The memo included such highlights as:
- The Pope blessing a gay marriage
- The Pope opening a child abuse helpline
- The Pope blessing an abortion clinic
- The Pope launching "Benedict Condoms" etc.
Needless to say the memo duly leaked, and now there is a right old Hooh Hah!
Sadly for the younger members of the FO there are still those in the establishment without a sense of humour. The FO senior mandarins have grovelingly apologised to the Vatican (kind of ironic given that the Pope has yet to apologise for the role of the church in covering up child abuse) and Auntie (the BBC) is with "hushed tones" asking "what will the Vatican say in response?".
However, based on past form, certain cardinals may well attempt to blame the Jews, media and gays again for this.
I dare say that the FO juniors who out this memo together will have rather "sore bottoms" today (so to speak), which is not surprising but rather sad.
Nanny and Auntie really ought to develop a sense of humour.
