First: David in KC – You’re looking mighty fine in that dress.

Second: DrDaveT – The Pope meets with Kentucky County Clerk Kim Davis and her legal team.

Third: Hal_10000The media were surprised and moved by the Pope’s impromptu rendition of “Folsom Prison Blues”


RockThisTown – “Your Holiness, please help us. Michelle Obama has put us on a new diet.” (That’s cruel and unusual – rodney)

Paul HoosonThe pope spends a few moments with former priests…

Jeron – Unemployed men getting their blessing! Soon to be joined by John Boehner.

markm – “On a more serious note Padre…..I was framed….”

bill – “what’s your prison bitch name?”

Tony W – “You’re forgiven, and you’re forgiven and you’re forgiven – everyone is forgiven!!!” But no new cars. Seriously, you guys are in prison.

The Papal Indulgence Award

John430 – Pope: “Well Paul Hooson. See what happens to you when you continue with the lame jokes?”


“I have sinned your holiness.”
“….just what do you wish to confess.”
“I drew cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.”
“God forgives you, Je Suis Charlie.”

Being an avid Arlo Guthrie fan, Francis visits the Group W Bench.

Heavy set inmate: “Hey… You gonna eat your pudding?”

“I was with the Purple Gang…. Can I see a rabbi instead?”

“I wanna be like Boehner and quit what I’m doing now too.”
“You mean quit doing time?”

Pope: “Pull my finger.”

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of god

  1. David in KC says:

    Woo hoo.

  2. Paul Hooson says:

    Thank you! I also loved the joke by John430 what a terrible comic I am! I wonder if being an unfunny Jew qualifies me for disability payments?

  3. Just 'nutha ig'rant cracker says:

    @Paul Hooson: I’m not normally a fan (I don’t like stand-up in general and killed a guy’s act in Korea by just sitting there impassively), but I really thought your offering was funny today. Thank you, I’ve been needing a laugh.

  4. Franklin says:

    I had nothing (didn’t even make an entry), so I was surprised how good these entries were. Nice job, everybody except me.

  5. John430 says:

    To: Rodney Dill for the Papal Indulgence Award…”Bless you, my son.”
