Pope Benedict XVI has announced a new sponsorship deal with chav's favourite Burberry and from now on we can expect to see His Holiness's gold and crimson vestments being dumped in favour of the brown plaid so beloved of skinheads and dolts the world over.
Benedict, real name Joey, looking 'proper wicked' in a baseball cap and bomber jacket told The Spoof:
"Well you see guy? D' Burberry is well bangin' proper and when I hang wit me friends, d'Cardinals, it's de dog's swingers an' all innit?"
A Vatican spokesman commented:
"Yo dude it's plaid to d'max an that. We, the church, is well happy wif fings an' that and His Holiness is chillin' before mass tonight. Respeck"
It's thought that this is one of several initiatives by the Pontiff to attempt to reach out to the young and in particular those who don't have a brain cell between them.
Wayne Sworld from Dagenham London told us:
"I think that His Holiness is attempting to bring the church to the youth and that can only be a good thing" He would have continued but was slagged off by his mates and called a big sissy so he then commented:
"The Pope in Burberry? Proper sweet and bangin' ain't it?"
