I guess the lesson here is try to avoid getting urinary tract infections.

He wasn't drinking his cranberry juice.  Too busy listening to God, probably.

Don't count the pope out until you see the box go into the hole.

Being from the Eastern Shore, his passing really hurts.  I never met him, but I know people who are related to people who met him. R.I.P.

 Because of people like Frank, many places on the shore smell a lot like the downwind side of a chicken rendering plant.
 
 I  briefly worked at a chicken slaughterhouse.  It's hard work.

News Flash:  Bob Marley Still Dead
 
 story
 
 BBC asks long-dead Bob Marley for interview
 
 LONDON (AFP) - A red-faced BBC apologised for requesting an interview with Bob Marley, the Jamaican reggae legend who died 24 years ago.
 
 
 BBC Three, one of the public broadcaster's digital TV channels, sent an e-mail to the Bob Marley Foundation saying it wanted to do a documentary about his hit song "No Woman No Cry".
 
 It said the project would involve Marley -- who died of cancer in May 1981 at the age of 36 -- "spending one or two days with us", and that "it would only work with some participation from Bob Marley himself".
 
 In a statement, the BBC said: "We are obviously very embarrassed that we didn't realise that the letter to the Marley Foundation did not acknowledge that Mr Marley is no longer with us."
 
 Marley would have been 60 last February 6, a date that was celebrated with great fanfare by his legion of fans worldwide.
 
 A BBC press officer, contacted by AFP in London on Friday, confirmed that the gaffe was not an April Fool's joke.

Is that a cue for some priest jokes? ,I hear your voice go, "if you must" Oh OK then since you insist:
 
 
 A priest in a confessional REALLY has to go to the bathroom and recruits a janitor nearby to sit in for him for a few minutes while he runs to the toilet...
 
 Relunctant, the janitor steps in... views the chart of penance, and the first confession starts.
 
 "Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned.... I lied to my mother."
 
 using the chart, the janitor fogives the sin and applies the appropriate penance.
 
 Second person comes in... "Forgive me father, I cheated on my husband."
 
 Same thing.. he gives the chart's penance... and prays it's the last time.. hoping for the return of the priest.
 
 The third patron comes in: "Forgive me father, for I have sinned... I was screwing my wife and hit the wrong hole."
 
 The janitor freezes... not knowing what to say. He can't find the sin on the chart... but he does hear alterboys practicing for mass.. and figures they can help.
 
 He ran to the alter and said "Quick.. alterboys... do you know what father gives for sodomy?"
 
 Together in stereo.. the boys say "Usually milk and cookies!"

The Yahoo headline changed from "Pope reported Dead" to "Pope's Condition Worsens".
 
 Wow - Worse than dead?  That's pretty bad.
