Et Tu, Georg?

My brother, Georg Ratzinger, supposedly told The Bild Newspaper that he’s concerned about my health. Quoth the Ratz:

“And health-wise, he's no longer the most robust. His heart! Such a man should really not have such a burden put on him."

I appreciate his concern, but I think you should be aware of his jealousy. He never wanted me to be Pope. They interviewed him when I was first nominated, and he immediately told them that I wouldn’t be a good Pope because I’d probably die within a year or two.

Little did he know that they were looking to hire a short-term Pope anyway, so I got the job. I know I may not be around very long, but it annoys me that my brother seeks publicity by speaking about my health. He’s a ratz. A real ratz.

I bet he used to steal your toys and get the biggest helping at the dinner table when you were children. Sibling rivalry, it never ends!

Ahh siblings are always like that. Don't take it too personally, Pope. Send him to purgatory!

George Burns made it to 100, and he smoked! Of course, he did play God in a movie, maybe that had something to do with it.

Then again, he played the devil once too. you would think that cancels out his role as God - but seeing as how he played God two or three times and the devil only once.....

The advanced theology makes my heathen head spin, kind of like Linda Blair in The Exorcist. Only in my case, there is no stream of pea soup green puke.

Aw, it's ok, Popie. I'm sure you'll be around for a good, long time. Don't you worry your pretty little head.

Most Holy Father,

I bet he is feeling inadequate and isolated. It is difficult to live in the shadow of a successful sibling.

You can get back at him by living until you're 100!

Your Servant,

You may decide, after some time, that your brother is doing you a favor afterall.

All will unfold with time.

By the way, I miss your presence at my blog! It must be the penis jokes!

When I read your brother's comments, I knew right away he was just jealous as hell. Oh, oops, sorry about the "hell."

In the Christian spirit, and all that sh!t.
