Hello, Hello Readers!
How are you? Have you had a nice cup of coffee today? By the way, what’s with my “hello hello”? As though I am in some great urgency or something, no? I merely wanted to express a big greeting in a grand sort of way because I haven’t been able to blog as regularly as I do, and “hello hello” was all I could manage in the spur of the moment apparently. Okay…even I am bored with what I’m talking about right now, so I don’t blame you if you’ve already yawned five times or have a sour look upon your countenance (haha).
Anyways, I have exciting news. I’m going to be writing a column called ‘Five Facts’ for the good people at Forces Of Geek! Which is awesome, right? It’s basically, according to one of my friends, “writing these articles on crazy things that would be long forgotten if it wasn’t for the internet holding forever onto its treasures.”
My first write-up for the column’s out – it’s about the Top 5 Most Unforgettable Popes. Here’s the introduction:
From Pope Stephen VI who put a cadaver on trial to a Pope who died of eating too many melons, papal history is an extremely amusing chronicle of dodgy Popes, infamous scandals and shenanigans attributed to the various men who’ve held the seat. Now, the vast majority were good men, but some Popes were so evil that the embarrassed Catholic Church has retroactively denounced them and tried to erase them from the history books.
