When Conspiracy Theories Collide

This is ridiculous.

I thought the big argument of the day would be between the Liverpool and Man Utd fans. There is in fact a conspiracy theory  abroad that they've made Mourinho manager of United so people get so bored they support Stockport County instead. Though that does seem quite plausible.

But no. The people who believe that Lord Lucan stole Shergar have just got into a massive fight with the ones who think he was secretly Pope John Paul I.

I mean, what a ridiculous idea.

Shergar couldn't be Pope. He was a gelding. Wouldn't be allowed.

Want a good laugh? Want to laugh at the church? Want to be secretly suspicious that the author has been sitting in your church committee meetings taking notes? Then Writes of the Church: Gripes and grumbles of people in the pews is probably the book for you.

From Amazon, Sarum Bookshop, The Bible Readers Fellowship and other good Christian bookshops. An excellent book for your churchgoing friends, relatives or vicar. By the creator of the Beaker Folk.


  1. I think they made Mourinho manager so we could beat Liverpool.


  2. I've never understood football consspiracy stories, who'd really want to get involved with a load of "Old Girls Blouses" running about after a ball and kissing and cuddling when they "Score" and get them selves into trouble and red carded for just punching their opposition.

    Mind you, their diving should get them into the Olympics as they're experts at it.
