Karol Wojtyla goes to Lourdes

I see from newspaper and TV reports that my esteemed friend Karol Wojtyla is currently making a pilgrimage to Lourdes (and that doesn’t mean to Madonna’s daughter). I refer, of course, to the holy shrine of Lourdes, France.

I have often had cause to rebuke the silly man for not being of the One True Faith but there are indications that I may soon have to reconsider my position on his grey eminence. Stories that, after his visit, he will be accepted as a late entry in the Olympic Marathon, run over the original distance, are probably slightly exaggerated. However, it is pretty likely that we will be seeing his Parkinson’s disease completely cured. Obviously, this depends on the waters of the shrine being ruffled by the wind at the appropriate time. Just wait for the pictures of the old darling dancing a celebratory Polka, shortly.
