Most Stupid Pope Headlines of the Week

New pope to bind simplicity with ‘complexity’

New pope, new Chinese president: Who’d win in a fight?

New pope, new Chinese president: Who’d win in a fight?

Good morning and welcome to our new series, which should last forever or end by next week, depending on the stars, the cosmos and whether or not I get up early enough:

Here’s a really insightful one:

New pope to bind simplicity with ‘complexity’

Mind you, only the complexity part gets the quotes on either side, simplicity gets by unscathed. Just one question — what the heck does it mean? Is it the same as “New pope to bind thinness with ‘obesity'”?

This one’s from the Guardian:

Pope Francis, first day after election – live updates

How do you deliver on such a promise — live updates on the new pope? Pope had breakfast. Pope meditated. Pope answered the phone. Pope fed parrot. Billions of believers want to know.

Another journalistic jewel from the Guardian:

Dennis Rodman at Vatican as cardinals choose new pope – video

I mean, wasn’t that the first thing all of us were eager to know — did Dennis Rodman make it to Vatican City in time for the announcement? And if so, can it be proven with an authentic video?

The Times of Israel had a calming message:

New pope hopes for ‘renewed collaboration’ with Jews

Because, let’s face it, the old collaboration against Jews was no fun at all.

This one, from Reuters, is rather colorful:

New pope? Unbelievers shrug, carp, titter

When was the last time you had a good carp? And why didn’t those unbelievers cod, or, better yet, snapper?

This AFP headline could be read wrong on so many levels:

New pope pays homage to Virgin Mary on first outing

Either someone has outed the pope — which was to be expected — or, much worse, someone has outed the Virgin Mary.

And finally, this rather dubious speculation from The Daily Maverick:

New pope, new Chinese president: Who’d win in a fight?

My money is on the Chinese guy — younger and looks to be in better shape.

    Yori, love your blogs and laughed out loud…I noted a glass houses angle: just as the AFP headline 'pays homage to virgin mary on first outing' could be read wrong so with the title of your blog: Stupid Pope Headlines of the Week.

  2. Yori Yanover says:

    Sara Ovitsn — I suppose only history will tell if he really was the most stupid… Nice catch, thank you.

  3. I think that the roman catholic church has forgotten, that Mary was a prophesy fullfilled, as she was of the royal line of David, and would bear a son, Isiaiah 7:14 and also that Christ is no longer on the cross, He has risen and is now our High Priest who intercedes for us with the Lord G-d the Father. so much idolatry in that church.
