More evidence that satire has been overtaken by events
If you bankers descend into theft, debauchery and excess, don't leave me out of it!
German satire magazine 'Titanic' took the piss out of the pope, showing him 'having spilled a fanta' onto his cassock while celebrating the discovery of the source of leaks threatening the dark secrets of papal banking.
Now the pope has sued the magazine for libel, ensuring that der Spiegel picked the story up internationally. Is the continence of the Pope an article of doctrine(ie subject to Papal infallibility)? Did God have a brainfart?
According to Benedict, the Pope can hold his piss, and that's official. Those making claims to the contrary will be excommunicated.
