I'm told

Moliere (?) recommended the neck of a live goose.

He did not, unfortunately, leave us any advice regarding potential consequences of the goose's dissatisfaction with such a state of affairs, particularly as this concern applies to the unappealing idea of placing one's vitals in such close proximity to the rather strong bill of a bird which amply earns its reputation for foul temper even before suffering the insult of being forced to stand in for a corn cob.

WTF?

Sending what message exactly?

"Renova wants true believers to launch toilet paper streamers from bridges along his planned route."

I'm not quite sure that he'll take being pelted with bog roll as a compliment......

Love the Satanic bogroll

Made from "100% virgin pulp", I notice

100% virgin pulp

Not very ethical to not use any recycled material. Should suit the Catholic church down to the ground.

Peddle your damned anti-papistry somewhere else

This is the Friday humor thread.

I always associated yellow, white and pale blue with the papacy…

Wouldn’t the black bog roll be more appropriate, wasn’t that the colour of his uniform in WWII. 100% virgin pulp, just like the alter boys.

This is not a title

We had a World Youth Day here in Toronto a few years ago and a better group of kids you will not find. Half a million or so young people came into town for a week and were, without exception, very well behaved. I know there are not a few on here who dislike anything to do with organized religion, but being around so many young, polite and well-behaved young people kind of gave me hope for the future.

Done for littering

Is this campaign secretly sponsored by the Madrid city council? Just think of all the extra income from doing people for littering as they launch bog rolls.

Err

Renova isn't Spanish, it's a Portuguese company.

WTF?

If anyone ever buys me...

... a bog roll gift pack for my birthday or any other daft occasion I shall douse it in petrol, light it and push it through their letter box, then take a dump on their back doorstep so they slip in my shit whilst trying to escape.

Gift packs of bog roll, I have truly seen it all now.

So we can now claim that referring to someone as an "arsewipe" .........

.............is an expression of religious respect?

Portuguese company maybe

But they ain't selling it here in Portugal. Would be Il Papa if they were....

But someone really ought to launch a range of condoms in gold and white, no?

Celebrate your wacky belief in fairies by littering!

...which would be normally considered an utterly daft statement, but as soon as you say it about a major religion such as Catholicism...

"oooh, steady on; they have a right to express their beliefs..."

Sure they do. Just like I have a right to express my beliefs that they are a bunch of deluded fools who think religion gives them a right to litter.

Sod off religious loonies: Go home, your paradigm is on fire.

Reminds me of the old joke, why is jizz white and wee yellow?

So one knows if one is coming or going. Now we have wipes to match, huzzah!

I'm not sure what kind of message this is sending about Catholicism, its commander in chief, and what one can do with his team's colors, but I'm sure the marketing team is having a laugh.

That's not toilet paper!

It's just napkins used by the pope to wipe his mouth after he gave you a speech on how raping (including kids?), cumulating money (e.g. to gold plate a massive marble palace in a private state despite Jesus having preached humility?) and using condoms (let the altar boys swallow?) is wrong.

I have to admit that it's easy to get confused since the Vatican talks sh*it out of its *ss.

my mistake

For a minute, when only glancing at the headline, I began to think it was some sick anti-popery joke, and they had printed the face of the pontiff on each sheet. If they had, they could encourage green thinking, by printing his face on both sides and adding the recommendation:

"In the interests of economy and green issues, please use both sides."
