"...difficile est saturam non scribere. Nam quis iniquae tam patiens urbis, tam ferreus, ut teneat se..." " is hard not to write Satire. For who is so tolerant of the unjust City, so steeled, that he can restrain himself... Juvenal, The Satires (1.30-32)

The Vatican stated today that after years of serious theological debate by a commission of some of the deepest minds of the Roman Catholic Church, the Pope will announce next Sunday that compelling the bride to perform the Funky Chicken during a wedding reception is grounds for an annulment. The Village People's YMCA is also on the list of wedding standards that can end a marriage, although Electric Slide is not. Also not on the list is the 1990's hit the Macarena, which is thought to have been left off the list as a favor to Opus Dei, the powerful Spanish lay organization, most of whose members are rhythmically challenged.
