The Columbia Broadcasting Company has issued an apology that was read by anchor woman, Katie Couric Tuesday concerning her recent interview with the Pope.
Although they were in two different countries, the interview was live and was supposed to be about the recent criticism of the Vatican for not revealing the misdeeds of some of their priests, and also the question of priests being allowed to marry.
As Couric explained today, she was just getting an answer from the pope about the lack of punishment for the priests behavior when Couric cut loose with a sailor's lament that clearly shook up Pope Benedict so badly that most heard a bad word from his direction, although a bishop in the background has taken the blame.
"Of all times", stated Couric, "there was a mouse that ran up my leg. I HATE mice, even to the point of having a mouse phobia. That started it and then when I got up to shake my booty to be sure the thing didn't keep climbing, two more ran across the desk."
Before she was cut off the air, Couric had issued the S word, the P word, the F word and then added the CS word & AH plus a B and two more loud S's.
Ten commercials were shown. Then an obviously shook-up Couric came back on and, while standing on her desk, asked that her scheduled interview with Rush Limbaugh to be put off until tomorrow. Limbaugh merely shook his head, stated that that would be fine, grabbed his shoe box and walked backstage.
