F, B, S and G are senior clergy of unimpeachable moral character.

However, G asserts that S lied when he denied that F said that B had claimed that S had contradicted G's testimony that B had admitted that F had told S that B had not said that G thought F had overheard G telling B that S was wrong to deny that B had told F that S had sworn that G had dismissed G's claim that F had reported that B had told S that F was proclaiming that G's account of the conversation between S and B was to be accepted... whom do we believe?

Answers on a postcard to Eugenio Scalfari.

Pope and Sarah

"But didn't G tell you that B had refused to comment?"


  1. Brain teaser or Book binder!?! Who’s on First!?!

  2. Well, actually, that DOES clear it up, amazingly. Thank you.

  3. My donkey Rubí who is a great fan of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI says that none of this mess would have happened if Bergoglio had accepted the job of assistant gardener in Castel Gandolfo which was the original invitation extended to him before he got ideas above his station and spiritual competence. My donkey Aitana suggests otherwise and says it's about time popes started taking a leaf out of the Duchess of Sussex's playbook and grabbing whatever advantage the job presents. I know nothing. I just deliver their straw.

  4. What you might call the A-Z of papal complexity...

  5. Eccles has perfectly captured the usual convoluted language of the left so that people may have the information needed to freely make informed decisions.

  6. B. confides in E(ccles):

    I know I mustn’t fall into the pit
    But when I’m with Scalfari...I fergit!

    I’m just a pope who cain’t say no / I’m in a terrible fix
    I always say come on let’s go / Just when I oughta say nix

    When Scalfari tries to question me
    I know I oughta give his face a smack!
    But whenever we talk heresy
    I somehow always wanna answer back...

    When Scalfari rings hello
    I can’t be silent or faint
    How can I be what I ain’t?
    I cain’t say no

    1. Dear Jane, - I think you may have written it too quickly copying it onto here.
      Here's the last verse again.....with the extra line you missed out...

      When - Scal-fari rings hello
      I can't be silent or faint,
      Nor am I Traddy or Quaint
      How can I be what I ain't
      I cain't say No.

      Thanks! GBU

  7. He said, 'I've changed from pantheism
    To an outright atheism,
    But if I must go on safari,
    I'd rather go with old Scalfari...'
