Rome - (Unholy Mess): Vatican profits nosedived last year despite record revenues from staple income sources such as altar boy pimping, nuclear arms proliferation, general arms dealing, drug running, the slave trade, money laundering, simony-related sales of novenas and holy relics, drive-by shootings and character assassination consultancies and assorted extortion rackets.
Accounts published today show that non-altar boy pimping business revenues for 2007/2008 included $20m from the USA, $9m from Italy, $5m from Germany, $3m from Spain, $2m from France, $2m from Ireland $1 from Brazil, $1 from South Korea and $25 from the Non-Aligned Crack Barons Association of Bogota.
The Pope's personal travel budget losses soared by 57% despite the Bush Administration's bankrolling of crucial apostolic trips.
These continue Vatican policies of gagging international law enforcement agenices' files on the assassination of President John F Kennedy (a George W Bush/John McCain production), the God's Banker murder (Bush/Blair) and the Shergar fiasco (Prince Charles/Ted Kennedy).
Tony Blair is a criminal bankrupt.
