Pope Benedict has been banned from appearing on an Italian television game show due to fears that he might use his 'papal infallibility' to beat all the other contestants.
The pontiff - whose chosen subject was to be 'altar boys of the late 20th Century - was escorted from the studio after he was overheard telling a bishop friend that his words were "infallible".
"Its disgraceful that a religious man of such authority would stoop so low as to cheat on a game show just to win an all expenses paid trip to Lourdes", said a network spokesman, "bastard!".
This is not the first time this particular pope has got into trouble on a national television channel.
In 2001 he streaked stark naked in front of the other house mates on the Vatican's version of Big Brother and revealed the secret confessions of the previous Sunday's mass goers.
