Satirical Vatican lawsuit post goes viral
A satirical article written about a fake Oakland rapper supposedly suing the vatican has gone viral.
According to The New Yorker's Borowitz Report, a nonexistent Oakland rapper, who records under the name Pope Emertius, is supposedly considering a lawsuit for copyright infringement should the Vatican not cooperate.
Furious at what he is calling a clear case of trademark infringement, Mr. Emeritus said that he has no intention of stepping aside for the former pontiff: "He's the one who should step aside. Call himself P. Biddy or something. This is wack, yo."
Numerous websites picked up the rumor (yes, KTAR included) and ran the story. Hopefully it brought a smile to your face, just as it did ours when we realized it was false.
