Yet another tragic wrist injury

The Pope suffered a broken wrist last night while in his chalet in northern Italy. In addition to the theological questions this raises (Does papal infallibility apply to the Pope's sense of balance? And if so, does that mean that His Holiness fell on purpose?), I couldn't help but notice that this once again validates Stephen Colbert's campaign to raise awareness of wrist injuries.

Stay strong, Stephen!


  1. Oh my God, Levi Leipheimer, a competitor in La Tour De France, also broke his wrist today. Coincidence? I think not. Clearly this is a divine miracle confirming Colbert's favor with the Lord.
