CAPTION THIS: When His Holiness Met Her Majesty

Elizabeth: "...and I thought this Chardonnay would be just lovely during one of your services."
Francis: "Oh, Liz. Our Lord only drank red wine, but I do appreciate that you Anglicans were thinking of the Real Presence when planning my presents!"
(Full story here. Picture c/o: Vatican Radio English)
We were most amused by your entries in our last caption contest. Our subjects presented many offerings, and although they were all quite adequate, only one took home the royal prize:

All those present in the court, please rise for Tommy (Tsunami), for this winning bit of wit:
"Lent is truly a penitential season, even for the Holy Father."
We also offer our polite applause for Angelico Nguyen, for this clever line:
'So you're saying, if they like their form of the Roman Rite, they'll be able to keep their form of the Roman Rite?'
And finally, we raise our opera glasses to Adam Clark for this, ahem, presentation:
O: I'm not saying it was an immaculate conception, but it was pretty darn close!

F: (stares blankly into space with a dead smile on his face)
Thank you all for participating. The next round begins now. Kindly leave only your best and brightest contributions to the Crown in the comments below.


  1. "And THIS is what we drank when we sank the Argies in the 80s....oh sorry"

  2. Oh! Charles, come quick! They replaced the Royal Easter eggs with Royal Wine!

  3. "Your Holiness, I hope you enjoy the fruit basket - after all, what's mine was yours."

  4. "Tea and crumpet?" the Queen asks.

    "Nah, bread and wine for me, thanks."

  5. This one will give you a good buzz.

  6. Papa, "I preferred the plastic dinosaur..."

  7. "So it's true you Anglicans only drink white wine."

  8. I hope your desire for a "poor Church for the poor" hasn't affected your ability to PAR-TAYYYY!
