This kind of stuff is so good, you can’t make it up. Here it is, right there on the Internet, so it must be true…
Apparently, Pope John Paul II, not content to just die and move on, came back for a visit. His shape appeared in a bonfire, which of course freaked out/delighted Polish Catholics who happened to be hanging out at the bonfire.
How cool is that? You get your picnic stuff together along with your folding chairs, and load up the family in the minivan, and meet other families at a local park. When it’s getting dark, someone says, “Hey, let’s start a bonfire,” which is cool, because after all, who doesn’t like a bonfire? But who could have guessed that Pope JPII was apparently also a **bonfire fan.
**That statement can be taken two ways – Either he likes bonfires and is therefore a “bonfire fan,” OR, he was literally using his own deceased, glorified body to fan the flame and get it going.
A few observations:
1. If you’re going to appear to people from the dead, and you were a religious figure, it seems a little suspicious appear in the middle of fire. Shouldn’t you be in the other place – the one that doesn’t include fire?
2. I’m going to have to start thinking of some cool places I want to appear after I die – probably Borders;
3. If the Catholics had allowed our dog Mabel to be Pope, she would never do weird stuff like this;
4. These people who think they see these whacky things are insane. Or smoking crack. Or both.
