Bush greeting cock-up

Sunday, June 10, 2007

(SNN SMOM) US President George W Bush drew gasps at the Vatican on Saturday by referring to Pope Benedict XVI as "sir" instead of the expected "His Holiness", pool reporters said.

They could clearly hear the US leader say "Yes, sir" when the pope asked him if he was going to meet with officials of the lay Catholic Sant'Egidio community at the US embassy later during his visit.

A handful of pool reporters were on hand as Benedict greeted Bush at the door of his private library ahead of a private audience of about half an hour. During that half hour, the President referred to Pope Benedict XVI as “Sport”, “Padre”, “Fritz”, “Buddy”, and “Mr. Popey Pants”.


Complaints:
"Padre."

ROTFLMAO!

He didn't, did he?
 
Hey, Doc, how's your book coming along?
:-)
 
Whatever, if I had been there I would have called both of them fucking idiots. I bow before no pope, and certainly not Mr. Fucking Idiot Bush.
 
Hill,

Only about 30,000 words to revise.
