In Which Sister Novena Is Consigned To Hell

As if that animated gif on Monday wasn't enough...

(Uhhhhh... don't read this if you're like, sensitive and stuff.)

The Dead Pope Collector: Bring out yer dead!

[a Cardinal puts a Pope on the cart]

Cardinal with Dead Pope: Here's one.

The Dead Pope Collector: That'll be ninepence.

The Dead Pope That Claims It Isn't: I'm not dead.

The Dead Pope Collector: What?

Cardinal with Dead Pope: Nothing. There's your ninepence.

Dead Pope That Claims It Isn't: I'm not dead.

Dead Pope Collector: 'Ere, he says he's not dead.

Cardinal with Dead Pope: Yes he is.

Dead Pope That Claims It Isn't: I'm not.

The Dead Pope Collector: He isn't?

Cardinal with Dead Pope: Well, he will be soon, he's very ill.

The Dead Pope That Claims It Isn't: I'm getting better.

Cardinal with Dead Pope:No you're not, you'll be stone dead in a moment.

The Dead Pope Collector: Well, I can't take him like that. It's against regulations.

The Dead Pope That Claims It Isn't: I don't want to go on the cart.

Cardinal with Dead Pope: Oh, don't be such a baby.

The Dead Pope Collector: I can't take him.

The Dead Pope That Claims It Isn't: I feel fine.

Cardinal with Dead Pope: Oh, do me a favor.

The Dead Pope Collector: I can't.

Cardinal with Dead Pope: Well, can you hang around for a couple of minutes? He won't be long.

The Dead Pope Collector: I promised I'd be at the Robinsons'. They've lost nine Popes today.

Cardinal with Dead Pope: Well, when's your next round?

The Dead Pope Collector: Thursday.

The Dead Pope That Claims It Isn't: I think I'll go for a walk.

Cardinal with Dead Pope: You're not fooling anyone, you know. Isn't there anything you could do?

The Dead Pope That Claims It Isn't: I feel happy. I feel happy.

[the Dead Pope Collector glances up and down the street furtively, then silences the Pope with his a whack of his club]

Cardinal with Dead Pope: Ah, thank you very much.

The Dead Pope Collector: Not at all. See you on Thursday.

Cardinal with Dead Pope: Right.

Hey, don't blame me -- that's what the old guy gets for dying -- er, almost dying -- that is to say, hovering on the very edge of death (is he dead yet?) -- on April Fools' Day.
