image for Ratzinger plans to go topless for new official Vatican calendar
Not for the squeamish: a heavily-censored image from the new Pontifical calendar

Vatican City - (Associated Mess): Joseph Ratzinger is set to become the first Pope to launch his own Pirelli-style calendar which promises to show the Pontiff in a daring range of topless poses including traditional hardware accoutrements typical of the Opus Dei cult.

Good taste alone dictates that only the merest snippet of his "Miss January" pose is issued with this press release which has been a heavily guarded secret pending discussions with the Pontifical Office for Smears, Insults, Innuendos and Slander.

But the Vatican City is said to be buzzing with rumors today that the calendar may be published in conjunction with the Agent Provocateur lingerie retailer following lengthy sponsorship negotiations brokered by Kate Moss.

More news expected later in the week.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
