Obviously,no-one knows exactly, but The Sunday Times has a picture of their meeting, with an added speech bubble for the Pope saying.
So what’s it like, being infallible?
I hope Pope Francis gave Putin some sound advice!
As I walked out of my house to get my newspaper, a guy passed me carrying a heavy case and a large stepladder.
It reminded me of Act 2 of a very old joke.
In Act 1, a guy walks across the stage carrying a case and he’s asked what he’s doing. He says that he’s a lawyer and he’s taking a case to court.
In Act 2, the guy walks back carrying the case and a ladder. His answer to the same question is that he’s taking the case to the High Court.
In Act 3, the guys walks back again, just carrying the ladder. This time his answer is that he lost the case.
I think I first saw it performed at a Scout camp, when I was about twelve.
I saw this poster at Scribbler in Liverpool Street station.
The caption says “gluten free, dairy free, fat free, I love this champagne diet.”
She certainly looks good on what she’s on!
I bought one for a friend!
With so many congratulating the Duchess of Cambridge on a successful birth, there had to be one or two that were funny. I like this one from Piers Morgan.
My money’s on an Australian cricket birth – all out by tea.
Obviously, it was on the news that the Duchess had gone into labour.
This is a headline in The Times and describes a plan by the Tate to put large images of some of our most famous paintings on thousands of poster sites around the country. There’s more on the scheme called Art Everywhere, here in the Independent.
I think it’s a brilliant idea. At least they’ll be more relevant to me, than the usual boring adverts you see, like the one I saw yesterday.
In fact I think it is so brilliant, I’ve just donated a small amount of money to help. £3 pays for the printing of a poster.
Some didn’t like the headline in The Times, but I think it’s just another in the series that contains the brilliant “Fog in Channel, Continent Cut Off!”, That headline is discussed here.
Money may make the world go round, but humour puts the smile on everybody’s faces.
They were just talking about drugs for cancer on BBC Breakfast.
They were interviewing a guy from Wolverhampton with stomach cancer, whose specialist at the local hospital said that he should get a second opinion. So his wife searched the Internet and found that his specialist, was one of the world’s leading experts in keeping people alive with stomach cancer. According to the interviewee, she then said “What’s he doing in Wolverhampton?”
There was a lot more in a similar vein.
It was a classic interview about a serious subject, conducted with a real Midlands sense of humour.
We may be in the depth of a recession, but you wouldn’t suss this from the magnificent response of the public to Comic Relief, as reported here on the BBC.
It’s for things like this, I always carry a camera.
I woke up this morning and found a Findus lasagne on my pillow!
