Skullington Boy

Skeletons live inside you. You have 206 bones in your body. This is all I care to say on the matter. If your heath had skeletons you would have little skeletons living in your mouth. If you want to learn more about skeletons go to the wikipedia page, you can see a skeleton man riding a skeleton horse. Thats pretty cool huh?

Fallible Infallibility

Pope Eggs Benedict XVI resigned as pope the other day due to health reasons. Is this a sign from god that he doesn't like Ratzinger anymore? Maybe Ratzinger thought he was near death and didn't like the idea of being attacked by the little silver hammer?

'On the death of a pope, the Papal Chamberlain must call out his baptismal name three times and tap his head with a silver hammer before he is officially declared dead'

I found that little nugget of information while googling popes on the inter webs. Interesting stuff. I also found this.

'The most popular papal name has been John, which has been taken by 21 popes. Despite that, the most recent Pope John was John XXIII. The two missing numbers were John XVI, an antipope, and John XX, who never existed but was included in a medieval miscount'.

Who the hell is the anti-pope? Is he some kind of Satan worshiping pope or is it more like anti-pasta? I also found out that while Ratzinger doesn't have a driving licence he does hold a helicopter pilot's licence.

Sick Joke

Tomorrow is pancake tuesday. The day when we all eat pancakes all day long until we become a pancake. In the olden days we used to just put lemon and sugar on our pancakes but now that America has been invented we put maple syrup on them. We also use the finger as an angry gesture when we used to use 2. These are a couple of examples as to how America is slowly influencing our culture. Soon America will stick a flag in our soil and claim us for their own and no one will stop them as we'll all be too busy eating maple syrup pancakes, calling ladybirds 'ladybugs', wrapping leftovers in 'aloominum' foil and thinking about zeebras as we walk along the 'sidewalk'. Our only hope is that the maple syrup thing is actually a canadian influence and that they will stand and fight with us. It's aboot time they sent those mounties into battle anyway.

The Good, The Fleg and The Ugly

People said that nothing good came out of 'Fleg Gate'. This however is untrue as the above cartoon came out of it and it looks fantastic! Look at the attention to detail! Black beard's hat even has his own flag on it! How about that eh? The ol' protests and the like about Belfast City Council's decision to only fly the union flag on 'special occasions' was a bit of banter to begin with but now it's just got tiresome. Pirates used to lower their flag to catch ships unawares before boarding and doing their pirate business on the poop deck (robbing the occupants I mean). Maybe we could learn a thing or two from this, maybe not. Maybe we should all design our own individual flags and celebrate our differences! We could fly them on our houses so that people would know if they'd like to pop round. If your flag had Master Chief on it gamers would know that they might like to ring your bell and pop round for some Halo
