Pope Francis and The Secret Message From Kim Jong-un

The Vatican Cardinal known as Cardinal JM walked into Pope Francis’ apartment.

“Holy Father,” said JM, “The Vatican has received a message from North Korea’s πŸ‡°πŸ‡΅ leader Kim Jong-un that is for your eyes only.”

“For me?” Pope Francis took off his glasses and wiped them.

“Yes,” Cardinal JM handed him the Vatican diplomatic corps dispatch box.

The Bishop of Rome opened the dispatch box and looked at the message.

“It’s written in Korean?” Pope Francis looked at Cardinal JM.

“Well,” Cardinal JM cleared his throat, “I imagine the Dear Leader (or whatever the Hell he’s called)’s Latin is rather shaky.”

“As is mine,” Pope Francis admitted, “but my Korean is even worse.”

Cardinal JM was immediately on the phone trying to track down a Korean translator.

3 hours later, the cook from one of Rome’s most popular Korean restaurants was in Pope Francis’ apartment.

The cook read the translation and also handed out copies of the restaurant’s evening take-out menu to all those present.

When he finished, he left.

“And do we have a copy of the manuscript to which the Dear Leader refers in the Vatican?” Pope Francis asked.

“I believe we do, Holy Father,” Cardinal JM stroked his chin πŸ€”.

He was soon on the phone to the monk in charge of the Vatican Archives.

The monk Head Archivist was apparently taking his evening cappuccino break and wouldn’t be back for another 6 hours.

“But we have no time to lose,” Francis cried, “World War III could break out at any minute.”

“I’ll go to every cappuccino bar in Rome and try to track him down, Holy Father,” Cardinal JM put on his coat and walked out the door.

This should certainly cure my caffeine fix for the next year, Cardinal JM thought to himself as he walked out into the night.

Meanwhile in the papal apartment, the clock on the wall was ticking.

Tick tock… tick tock…

The Pope remembered a song he had once heard an American youth group sing,

“The kings of West and East
they play a game of war and peace…”

Tick tock… tick tock…

    I am trying to figure out who JM is, hmmm… πŸ™‚

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Cardinal JM is a fictional character.

      JM is the initials of his secret society moniker Judas Manasseh.

      Cardinal JM is a cardinal who worships the Greek gods Zeus and Apollo in secret.

      I don’t know if there are too many Cardinals who do that- although there may be a few- one just never knows these days. πŸ˜‰

    ‘And do we have a copy of the manuscript to which the Dear Leader refers in the Vatican?” …I wonder if this might get mixed up with the menu the cook was handing out…hmmmmm….

    Nothing like a nice Korean Takeaway

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      I very much agree, Malcolm. πŸ™‚

      I used to eat a lot of Korean food when I lived in Vancouver.

      Because there were a lot of Korean restaurants out there.

      I also ate a lot of Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese and Indian food when I lived there.

      In fact, I think I ate more Asian food when I lived in Vancouver than I did what’s called Western food.

      In fact, I now prefer eating Asian food but there isn’t such a large variety living in Calgary.

    You’ve done it Again, pulled another pearler out of that seashell.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Glad to hear that, Amanda. πŸ™‚

      I hope to someday pull out a Pearl of Great Price.

    Haha!. Brilliant, dear Dracul… Love the ironic twists here (for example and especially when you mention that the proud cook “handed out copies of the restaurant’s evening take-out menu to all those present”, and yet Pope Francis didnΒ΄t ge any!)… Quite kafkaesque… bureaucracy, included!. Love & best wishes to you! πŸ™‚
