Pope Francis this morning stated that it was permissible for Catholic Clowns to use blown up condoms to make poodles and other small animals out of them.
"But no eroticism or use of French Ticklers ot glow-in-the-dark!"
The Clowns were overjoyed and began honking and planning to put on shows for the kiddies today, for any birthday parties.
Also, the clowns were given permission to make jokes about Pope Francis as long as they are in good taste.
"I also want to hear it first."
Number three, he named Bishop Claudius the new title of "Court Jester" and told him that he had a full month to come up with "something that will make us all laugh."
"The world has lost it's sense of humor and that could be unforgivable because if it ever needed a good laugh, it is now!"
The Pope then put on a Groucho Marx mask and blessed their hearts.
