I’m submitting this as the most ridiculous news story of the past week: Wafergate. The Prime Minster of Canada was offered a communion wafer at a funeral and supposedly put it in his pocket instead of eating it. At first some Catholic vicar was upset that a non-Catholic (the Prime Minster) would take communion in a Catholic church. That’s apparently a big no-no. But now it’s a bigger story that he put in his pocket?
My favourite quote from the article: “It’s worse than a faux pas, it’s a scandal from the Catholic point of view.” This is more ridiculous than all the Michael Jackson news.
