The Bergoglio Imbroglio: The New Pope, Tweeted

I enjoy Twitter during big public events, especially those that are incredibly silly. One such kind of event would be, say, a GOP candidates’ debate. Today, we had the announcement of the new pope, which is even sillier because at least with Republican presidential candidates, only some of them think they were anointed by God.
Here are some selections of my papal tweeting that I and others found most amusing.

      • Yeah, well, fair enough for the nth time, with n > 1, that I encounter a post of yours with a “me, being amusing” theme. But the 1st time–well I can hardly know not to read it the first time, can I?

  1. Those were all quite amusing, heddle. You obviously have no sense of humor.
    Either that, or humor is a notoriously subjective thing, and making comments based on the idea that it’s some sort of reference point is silly.

  2. SZ,

    Really… you actually find “Wow, you guys all look like ants” not just amusing but quite amusing? Hmm. Well, I don’t think you can conclude, as you assert, that I “obviously” have no sense of humor. You may be right of course. But I think you can only safely conclude that your sense of humor differs greatly from mine.

  4. Re-blogging yourself is like quoting yourself while delivering a speech. It can be done successfully, but I can’t think of any examples of such.

  5. How’s about this for funny heddle, the new pope is an Argentine war criminal with a penchant for throwing priests out of airplanes.
    You’d think that an ex Nazi paedophile would be a tough act to follow but the Vatican was up to it once again.

  6. Stephanie is quite wrong. Heddle’s self-regard is the funniest comedic bit I’ve seen in some time, though one has to be a fan of absurdist humour to really get it. How he plays it with such a straight face…bravo!

    • Who are you? And does the “oh, you have to understand and have insight regarding the commenter as I do, but trust me if only you knew what I know” gambit typically work for you?

      • Worked for me as a lampoon of your comments… Much like I found some of Pauls tweets funny, some less funny. Look up mind projection fallacy and then come back to fix your first utterance on this post.

      • I doubt that it did. Look up affirmation by “back-slapping” and come back to replace your first utterance on this post with something substantive.

      • I looked up “mind projection fallacy” and found this, as an example:

        For example, someone might informally claim that broccoli tastes bad, even though “taste” depends on one’s taste buds and prior experience.

        Clearly, that applies here. Back-slaps all ’round for oolon.
        I couldn’t find a similar reference for “affirmation by ‘back-slapping'” tho…

      • I’ve only read a few of your comments but already I wonder if you ever say anything in a straightforward manner? It seems, on limited data, as though you do not–and it appears that you are very proud of your own obliqueness. Perhaps you are the Yogi Berra of our time.

        Actually, you’ve read many of his comments, posted under a different ‘nym.

  7. Hi. I’m shutting down comments on this post because I’m tired of my blog being a stage for pointless griping from a disgruntled non-reader.
