Pope Mentions Paraguayan Scientists in Sunday Mass


The Pope of Rome singled out the Paraguayan Scientists who are sitting in a limousine precariously upturned at the edge of the opening of an active volcano. He suggested that all Catholics and Heathens from other religions pray to the Virgin Mary to save the scientists, who appear to be too scared to try to open the car door.

"We are living off the vast stores of snack foods and liquor here in the limo," Hector Chang, the taller of the two scientists whispered in an interview over the limo-phone. "Don't worry. We have a bathroom and everything in here." Then after an awkward silence, the man who had dedicated his life to godless-science blurted out: "Pray for us!"

As the Pope mentioned the two scientists, he cringed and showed tension in his shoulders.

I hate to be an alarmist, but I am an amateur scientist and if I am not mistaken they run the risk of breathing toxic gasses that close to the volcano.
