Culture of Illusion – “Iway on’tday antway otay ebay opepay anyway oremay.”


What better way to announce your retirement than in latin? Pig-latin, that’s what.

The last Pope to abdicate, Celestine V, first set up the rule to allow Popes to abdicate. Then he abdicated. So that was pretty sneaky of him.

Priest – “Pope Celestine, why are you setting up this rule to allow Popes to abdicate?”

Pope Celestine V – “No reason! Nothing to see here! Move along!”

Priest – “Oh. Okay.” (priest carries on sweeping floor, glancing suspiously at Pope Celestine from time to time)

This post isn’t going making any particular point about religion or the Catholic Church. I just wanted to make a pig-latin joke in the title.
