Thoughts On The Dead

Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

An Escalation Of Force

Hey, Your Holiness. Whatcha doing?

“I’m-a callin’ da Jesus.”

The phone’s not plugged into anything.

“He’s-a da Jesus! He wanna pick up-a da phone, He pick up-a da phone.”

Sure. You know why I like Jesus, Pope Francis?

“Why?”

Because you capitalize His pronouns, so He’s always so easy to find in a paragraph.

“I like-a da love He-a had for us, so that-a we could share in His-a resurrection.”

That, too.

POPE PHONE NOISE

“Is that-a you or me?”

I’m not a Pope. My phone doesn’t make that noise.

“Si, si. Only one-a Pope.”

Except for that one time in the 1400’s there were two.

“No, no. That was-a da Anti-Pope.”

Oh, right. The Pope of Rome declared the Pope of Avignon the Anti-Pope. The Middle Ages were like a dumb comic book.

“Si, si.”

POPE PHONE NOISE

“I should-a get that.”

It’s not plugged in.

“Maybe it’s-a Jesus.”

Sure.

“I’m-a da Pope-a, what’s-a da dope-a?”
