This is a question The B3TA Confessional

With the Pope about to visit the UK, what better time to unburden yourself of anything that's weighing on your mind by posting it on the internet? Pay particular attention to the Seven Deadly Sins of lust, greed, envy, pride, posting puns on the QOTW board and the other ones. Top story gets to kneel before His Holiness's noodly appendage, or something

Top story prize
Talking about the Pope and reading your prize for top story.

Back in the 80's, 86 I think, Pope John Paul II visited New Zealand. I was working for HP at the time and one of my colleagues was a very devout Christian whose Church was cashing in on the visit by running a raffle.

He traipsed around the building offering everybody and anybody a beautifully printed 10 dollar ticket that listed the first prize as being given the "honour of kissing the Pope's ring."

After I pointed out that kissing the Pope's arse might not generate many sales he went bright red and sneaked away. A week later he reappeared with a cheap raffle book with a reworded first prize, an old joke but true story.
