Pope Benedict to write a book

Pope Benedict XVI, notorious Catholic and leader of one of the world’s largest faith-based organizations, has begun work on his latest book, which is confidently expected to be a huge best seller along the lines of those written by Tom Clancy, Dan Brown or Ann Coulter. His subject is to be Jesus Christ, well known prophet, Messiah and Son of God, and this book is expected to blow the lid off many of the myths that have grown up regarding Jesus over the past two thousand years.

Father Gert Rottweiler, head of the Vatican bookstore, Now Dat’sa Good Book, and author of the religious pamphlet, ‘Most Of Us Hardly Ever Molest Children Anymore’, is very excited by the forthcoming book. “The Pope has a proven track record when it comes to writing,” he says. “He loves the process; the research, the study, the playing Solitaire on the computer. It is all a source of great joy and relaxation to him.”

When it was pointed out that after two millennium it was difficult to believe that there could be any new information to be found on what can be a very controversial subject, Father Gert replied, “You’d be surprised what we have stashed away down in the Vatican basement here. Very surprised. There are nooks and crannies everywhere and I think the Pope will find some interesting little bits of new information when he looks. Hey, you never know! I know that whatever he finds will hold your interest.”

Does the Vatican expect the possibility of new information to be a major selling point? “Well, you know it might be but we’re not going to depend on it. Perhaps to those who are not members of the Church. As far as those who are members of the Church, we have a saying here in the Vatican book store when it comes to books written by Popes, “Better read than excommunicated and sent to never-ending torment in the fiery depths of the deepest bowels of Hell.”

The book is expected to be released sometime in the next few years.

Anyway… Humouroceros
