You have to give them some credit for even thinking about this.
Sri Lanka President, Rajapaksa, Dressed In His Pope Outfit, Stays On For Nelson Mandela’s State Funeral.
.by Anura Guruge
I was, as I had for the last 72 hours, was on a mission to find the body.
Happened to see this YouTube video with the ‘… body lies …‘ title. So, of course, I had to watch it.
I only spotted Rajapaksa (who I don’t know) because he stuck out … the lone figure in white
… yes, the Sri Lankan national outfit (sans the red scarf) … but, with the red, makes him look like a wannabe pope
(which would, of course, make his Catholic wife rather happy).
So, from what I can see, he stayed on after the open air memorial service earlier this week.

You would think that there would be ONE official picture.
Don’t get it.
Trust me. I have a nose for such matters. Something is amiss.
We have seen the bodies of plenty of heads-of-state and popes at their funeral.
I come from a culture where the body is invariably on show
— typically properly embalmed given the heat.
Yes, it is ‘Spring’ in South Africa.
I think, as with the fake interpreter, they screwed up.
That would not be unusual for them.
They are good at that and have lots of practice.
Another Meaningless, Totally Insignificant Friday The 13th. It Is Only Really ‘Fun’ When It Falls In October And You Happen To Be A ‘Knights Templar’ In Drag.
..by Anura Guruge
On average we get a Friday the 13th every 212 days.
We already had one this year in September.
We will have another one in June 2014.
Friday the 13th really ALL has to do with the Dissolution of the Knights Templar on Friday, October 13th, 1307. [See above post.]
So Friday the 13th in December is meaningless. Sorry.
