VATICAN CITY -- Pope John Paul II may have to return to the hospital to have a feeding tube inserted, an Italian news agency reported today. It stressed that no decision had been made.

The APcom news agency, citing an unidentified source, said the 84-year-old pope might have to have the tube inserted to improve his nutrition since he is having difficulty swallowing with the breathing tube that was inserted Feb. 24.

APcom said the idea of inserting a feeding tube was a hypothesis that was being considered. The procedure involves inserting a tube into the stomach to allow for artificial feeding. LINK

Whatever happened to the days when they banged a silver hammer on the pope's forehead and called his name out 3 times before announcing his death?

Honest to GAWD!

They used to do that, then they used the same silver hammer to break the Pope's Fisherman's Ring and his Papal Seal.

I know what you're thinking...

Bang! Bang!
Maxwell's silver hammer

Came down upon her

Bang! Bang! Maxwell's
silver hammer

Made sure that she
was dead.

While you're trying to remember the lyrics
Maxwell's Silver Hammer, here's an idea...

When Ron Popeil starts selling ventilator tubes and
feeding tubes for the low, low price of $19.95, it'll be
Time To

Feeding Tube-----------------Ventilator Tube

I'm all for employing these medical devices if they
improve my quality of life; however, I want no part of
these plastic wonders being used to prolong my
braindead existence, thank you.

You, of course, have to make that decision for

While you still can.
