270,000 Priests have to be scrapped

There was panic in the Vatican yesterday and their switchboard was ringing non stop after radio broadcasts apparently announced that 270,000 priests were to be scrapped.

Thousands of priests phoned in thinking they were losing their job of representative for the invisible man in the sky but it soon became clear to them that they had misinterpreted what had been said apparently it was Toyota recalling 270,000 Prius cars to be scrapped because of serious faults.

A representative of the Vatican explained that they had spoken to each caller and reassured them that their jobs were safe.

John O'Brien a priest from Dublin said he phoned the Vatican but after hearing an explanation he said I wont do that again.
