Those of you who read me regularly may have noticed that I try not to use profanity within the confines of this blog. In this case, there is no way to express what I am feeling after hearing the news that Pope Benedict XVI announced his resignation without being somewhat profane. Seeing that I would like to keep my reputation for eloquence in tact, I will let someone else do the swearing for me… as his sentiments, set to music, mirror my own.
So without further ado, may I present the very talented Tim Minchin singing The Pope Song.
And, may I add, good riddance to bad rubbish.

Yes, FIVE smileys!
It just had to be said.
I don’t swear much, but if there’s anything that will make me, it’s a religious coverup of child molesters. Amen to Tim Minchin. (And extra kudos for skillful execution of a patter song. I sing. Those suckers are hard, even when you wrote them yourself.)
Absolutely. I watched in amazement waiting for him to take a breath.
Thanks. I’m still laughing. Popey bye, bye, bye. 🙂
I just discovered Tim Minchin on YouTube a few days ago, and this particular song of his was part of the inspiration that led me to write my post. Thanks for sharing!
