Pope or Blaine?

The Pope has challenged famous magician David Blaine to a public miracle competition. Pope Benedict told this website: "Yeah, yeah - I've seen what this Blaine can do.All very clever in its own way - fasting for days, frozen in time, fake drowning. But Blaine hasn't seen anything yet."

The Pope would not reveal anything just at the moment - but sources close to the Vatican say that bringing people back from the dead is a real possibility.

"Pope Benedict is totally in tune with the X factor generation - and knows that to make catholicism work he needs to move away from the self-flagellating, hairs-shirty, intellectualising spirituality and go for the balls-out showmanship. Bring us your corpses - (holy) see what we can do." Simon Cowell was not impressed: "I'll see his returned from the dead corpse and raise him a SuBo." The mogul said.

The UK government was not prepared to comment on the news - although one Treasury spokesman said that if he was intending to turn water into wine it would need to be after 11am, in keeping with the licensing laws - and reminded the pope that VAT is payable on alcoholic beverages.
