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.

  1. You know, catholics really piss me off. These assholes could do without getting attention. The archbishop said it was “church law” that non-catholics could not receive communion. I wonder under what church law does it state they can fuck little boys in the ass?

  2. I betcha that cookie would be worth something on eBay if he could burn a portrait of jesus on it with his Bic lighter.
