Pope Francis Tar Baby Alert System's First Operational Success
The first operational test of the Pope Francis Tar Baby Alert System (TBAS) took place today as the Pontiff accepted The Charlemagne Prize. TBAS detected the award ceremony and determined it defied any rational explanation. TBAS analysis warned that any attempt to write about it carried an extreme risk of completely wasting time, with only a small irony yield.
|Br'er Rabbit & Tar Baby|
The original Tar Baby was described in an Uncle Remus story in 1881. It was a doll coated in tar designed to trap Br'er Rabbit by sticking to him. The more Br'er Rabbit wrestled with the Tar Baby, the more stuck he became.
TBAS intelligence is shared with the entire community of Catholic ephemerists as a free service of St. Corbinian's Bear ephemeris.
