Berlin - (Ass Mess): German people have reacted angrily to a Polish magazine story showing their PM Angela Merkel breastfeeding Pope Joseph Ratzinger on the cover of the International Fascist Tribune.
The photo-montage shows the ample-bosomed German Chancellor suckling the adoring former Hitler Youth leader Joseph Ratzinger while gently stroking his,.. .er bald patch.
The image may have been a photo-chopped parody using the lithe and lissom body of an 18 year old nun according to some sources who questioned Merkel's own embonpoint being photogenic enough for a full-frontal shot.
Polish reporters said today that the satirical piece aimed to highlight German dependency on Ratzinger staying immune from any prosecutions over the unresolved murder of God's Banker Roberto Calvi.
But their German counterparts said that the magazine cover was a tasteless intrusion into German internal politics "which quite frankly sucked".
