Well the Pope has done it again!
Apparently the Pope has decided to come to the rescue of those who are apt
to cursing when their computer ‘crashes’ and irritatingly informs one that an ‘illegal
action’ has been performed. HOW? The Pope is going to name St Isidore of Seville as the
patron saint of computer users and the Internet.
This continuing idiotic saga of naming so-called saints and giving them
responsibility for areas of human life etc has reached new powers of processing. No longer
will it be an Intel Pentium processor but rather an ‘Otel Vatican intercessor’.
One wonders whether this saint knows what he has been let in for and whether his heart disk
will have enough prayer bites on it.
How has this saint been elected? The proposal came from Spanish Bishops
who advocated that St Isidore was the best candidate on the grounds that in the
7th century he produced one of the world’s first databases in the form of a
twenty-volume encyclopaedia called the Etymologies. [A database alla dictionary?]
Apparently sources reveal that the Web is high on the Pope’s concerns. The
Vatican has had its own computers since 1996 and its web-site is powered three computers
named Raphael, Michael and Gabriel. I am sure Lucifer must be in their somewhere causing all
the gliches. Perhaps the Pope has designs on Microsoft’s Wealth and power. All a part of the
Pope’s World Wide Web.
No, he’s an intercessor
