Salon readers rhyme the Pope’s resignation and Seth Macfarlane:
Amidst litigation galore,
Pope Benedict has said “No more!”
He says he'll pursue prayer,
But I'm scratching my hair,
Asking, "What the hell's changed from before?"
I admit I don't care who they pick
For best actor, director or flick.
But here's news: When rude rubes,
Reduce women to boobs,
They'll now earn "a MacFarlane" (Best Prick).
