ROMAN Zzzzzzguls?



Jonathan Zuhlsdorf Seagull
Sent in by a loyal Reader:
Good News: Fellow arch-conservative ordained full-time blogger and ultra-traditionalist (except on the issue of celibacy because he's a former Evangelical, then Episcopal, now Ultramontane Roman) Dwight Longenecker was in St Peter's Square (my goodness, but traditionalist blogger priests DO get to travel a lot, don't they? And don't have to pay for such travel! Which sounds more like the Obama approach to life than the Francis approach .... but I digress) and SAW the dove release and the attack of the crow and seagull. "I'm happy to say that the doves finally escaped!" Blogger Longenecker reports. So that's the Good News.


Bad News: Never one to avoid Bad News (especially if it will bring in big $$$), Father Zzzzzzz reports to his Zzzzombies that the National Animal Protection people have asked the Pope to stop releasing doves into the dangerous skies around St Peter's. But he goes on in RED (you know, Say the Black, Do the Red? Which we hilariously - if we do say so ourselves - parodied as Drink the Red, Do the Black. But then we went to Confession): [I say...KILL THE GULLS.  The damned flying vermin kept me awake for years in Rome. Rats with wings.]

Well, we can't have THAT now, can we? Birds keeping Fr Zzzzzz awake. Say, wait a minute .... Birds go to sleep around sundown, no? And wake at dawn, when all good traditionalist priests are saying ... saying what Office at that time of the day? Probably "anticipating" Vespers of the following day, or some other meaningful tradition.


Therefore, speaking of traditional clerical practices, I guess they were keeping Fr Zzzzzz awake during the Sacred Afternoon Clerical Nap.

Nice "work" if you can get it!
Father D cannot help but comment here.  When searching for pictures for this post I stumbled upon a picture from a few years ago when a different pope released doves which where attacked.  A quick check of the ArchiveZzzzzz do not turn up  ONE SINGLE SNARKY COMMENT by Zed about that dove being attacked.  Hmmm.
From the Archives: Photo of Papa Ratzinger, Pope Benedict XVI, feeding doves to Roman Seagulls in hopes that this sacrificial offering will satisfy the gulls enough to quiet them down during the afternoon clerical rest period.
 This was brought to my attention via the comment box.  I will just copy and paste.

Did anyone see the picture he put up of the pope running from birds?

Great respect for the Holy Father. I'm sure he'd let the same sort of stuff be posted about Benedict

  2. Hey, a little compassion for Fr Zzzzzzz . . . poor bastard's "thermometer for a recurring monthly/weekly fleecing" is nowhere near topped off yet, and he's still got the Union Jack up begging "Won't some brain-dead layman (laywoman, if absolutely necessary) pay for my next junket of food-filming in the UK?" So that's probably a no-go. And he surely knows by now that it's hard to fill a hankering for Spotted Dick on this side of the Big Pond.

  3. LOL, is this what he means by bringing a greater sense of reverence into the church? Mocking the Vicar of Christ. What a piece of work.

    1. HEY! Enough of that kinda language. WORK is a four letter word, and we will have NONE of that around here!

  4. Problem with Zuhlsdorf's heart is something drank the red and left the black.

  5. This blog, a once GREAT and hilarious satire has sadly fallen into the same bitterness and effeminate griping about clothing, bashing the memory of Benedict as much as Zed implies Franis isn't as good. Too bad, how sad. We've fallen a LONG way from reporting on "Cornhole Championships" & listening to the great Allen Sherman. Too bad. Now just yet ANOTHER snarky self congratulating blog talking about clothes, bashing those who don't agree. Creaming over every fart Francis makes, like Zed's followers did over Benny. The more things change ...
