I'd like to be Pope. Why can't I be Pope?
It's who you bloody know nowadays. I know they've got to advertise it and it'll be posted in all EU job centres but I'll bet they'll ignore equal opportunities, light their little fire and send bloody smoke up the papal bloody chimney without giving me or anyone else an interview or even a backward glance.
I've got the Latin. I did it at School and I believe in God. I mean, that's gotta give me a head start on most applicants.
Contraception? Ive got no problem in saying, 'No. Each tiny sperm deserves a shot at life'.
No! I tick all the boxes but I won't get a bloody look in.
It's who you bloody know! Do they embrace difference? Im bloody different. Thats another box I tick.
In fact, the more I think about it, the more convinced Im the right person for the job.
Mind, I wouldn't be a Pope who'd just go with the flow and not rock the boat. I've got ideas. Good ones. I wouldn't wear that bloody costume for starters. I mean, you'd be a fool to walk home from a night out, blind drunk clutching a dripping kebab and not expect some fool shouting,' Oh here he comes. Mr Big Time Charlie landed on his feet and becoming Pope'.

b47 - have you taken your eye off the ball - or rather, off your nemesis Jarvis Cockup? Not content with king, you now want to be gods right hand man on earth! Is it just the bullet proof Range Rover you're after, to charge across the Castle Green towards JC as he fires a couple of rounds at you from the Council blunderbuss?

TWG, Well that's where you're wrong my old friend.
A King cannot carry out an excorcism whereas a Pope can.
If I got the job and for the sake of argument lets say that I did, then I'd get me papal garments on together with all the paraphernalia normally associated with a holy man and I'd tip up at Brockington House and I'd summon Jarvis to see me.
He'd kiss me papal ring and then I'd tell him that I was excorcising his demons.
I'd have a bucket of holy bloody Lugg water, a few baseball bats, the Old Testament and I'd get to work on driving out Satan.
And.....it'd take days!

What a great idea - Pope Bobby 47th. I suspect it would be a paypal ring but maybe you could have a Lord of the Rings set and go all out to be ruler of middle earth too?

Best bit about that job is that you get elected (not strictly universal suffrage but close enough) and no need to leave.

Of course the pay's a bit bad if you're used to the sort of riches the council apparently splashes around - but the bullet proof range rover, museum full of gold and jewels, palace in Italy, gifts from the masses might take some of the pain away. And a billion and a half catholics around the world waiting on your every word - what's not to like?

Is it the HT fearing prosecution or fearing having to provide evidence to the police or something else?

Wysiati, Youve given me two consonants, namely the letters 't' and 'h'. Take them back!
I know what your all thinking. 'He's never going to be made Pope'.
Well that may well be but don't make light of demonic possession which would explain some of the decisions Jarvis has made.
I've researched this stuff and its fascinating. This book Im reading now titled, ' A simple twelve step guide to carry our an Exorcism on a Council Leader' explains the nature and beguiling traits of the Succubus and
the Incubus.
It's all pretty straightforward and as long as the Lugg water has been blessed the recipient could survive this awful medieval practice.

Bobby - no charge for a t or an h - put them on your expenses.

What did you do with all the other Bobbies - 1-46 - all cut with the new police commissioner?

The more I think about it the more suitable it seems - Pope Bobby - the pontiff able to pontificate at will

As Pope can you tell me where the other threads have gone?

Wysiati, they just pulled the plug. One or two comments were near the knuckle if the reader wanted to be offended but I didn't think anyone had overstepped the mark.
Posters were simply expressing themselves. Anyway, Ubique has ridden off for a rest and so am I.

Bloody Hell. I'm on strike and I've had to break through the picket line to address this.
There'll be no talk of 'dealing' with anybody. we all have things to say and were all entitled to express our views.
As for my good friend, Schiztroll, you express your view and continue to do it. You certainly won't offend me and I look forward to seeing more of your posts.
That said, try a little more to air your view in a polite fashion. If for example you are addressing the issue of 'me' and you want to say, 'this bobby 47 is an idiot'. say it in a different way, such as, 'He's no King of mine and I question whether or not he should be allowed to roam free without two well built psychiatric nurses clutching his forearms'.
As for Biomech and the others they are all good people with very different views so just try a little to accommodate these friends of mine.
My very warmest regards to you my good friend.
Now Im going back to the picket line!!!

Having spent yesterday shriving my soul (the fuzz didn't seem to care), I am now off to spend 40 days in the wilderness fasting! The 40 nights I shall spend feasting in the foothills of the Black Mountains (hope the Bulls Head at Craswall is still open). I have burned a few copies of Herefordshire Doesn't Matter, and used the charred remains to place a cross on my forehead, as required by my new religion.
Who would I like as the new Pope? Well, I am going to be controversial and suggest that a woman be elected!
I will not cast my vote for Bobby47, as he is the greatest King what we have had.
Let another country provide the Pope. England provided a Pope in the form of Nick Breakspear as Adrian IV, who went on the invent the intravenous drip.
We can't expect another turn after just 854 years have passed.
So brothers and sisters, please think of me in your prayers as I brave the elements in pursuit of purity of soul.

Littlewhitebull, Yes I'll be thinking of you as you explore the depths of your tortured soul in search of inner peace.
The Black Mountains is an excellent place to purge your inner demons and oft used by those who want to experience the cold, harsh weather, psilocybin mushrooms and of course the joy of running around naked indecently exposing yourself to the many varieties of beasts and creatures who have made this bleak habitat their home.
You'll have the time of your life up there, you'll never regret it and you'll emerge a shadow of your former self and all the better for it if my view is worth a jot.

I do think that Little white bull should go back to school and study his declensions!
An old joke we used at school in my day (many moons ago) concerning Latin was:
What did the verb say to the noun?

"I'd ask you to conjugate, but I'm afraid you'd decline."

The Posts from Littlewhitebull and Wyesider have gone some way to explaining the misery that we felt when, after Woodwork we dragged our satchels along the corridor knowing we were to be given another Latin lesson.
You younger Posters will have no comprehension of what it was like to study something that we knew then and still know now, would be of no bloody use to us throughout our long lives.
