Hitting the Prime Minister with a cathedral.

Silvio Berluscioni took "a small, metal souvenir replica of the Doumo di Milano" to the face.

The replica of the cathedral, famous for its gothic spires, was initially said to be made of metal but later reports suggested it was plaster.

The Prime Minister took a bootleg in the face?

Bissage said...

Whoever threw that cathedral was quite the nave.

it was a baptism by fire

I'm sorry it happened, but it demonstrates why there should be a separation of Church and State.

Really, though, the more I read about Berlusconi, the less there is to like about him.

I don't know Scott, Bissage seems to be in contention.

Nor would Thomas a Becket have approved.

Bissage is always in contention.

Not surprisingly, the Lefties here think it's too too funny. After all, Berlusconi was one of Dubya's right hand men.

If Ignorance is any indication, we can be fairly sure they wish the same thing happened to Dubya.

Ah, the compassion and empathy of the Left.

WV "ognially" when something is done in an ognial fashion.

Silvio should have kicked the guy's buttress.

Silvio should have kicked the guy's buttress.

The attacker is said to be mentally unstable .. so he was prescribed a flying buttress.

(face it* we are not going to beat Bissage)

If we go halves on a metal replica of St. Peter's Basilica we could at least make a dent.

Lem said...

Yes but if we go metal then we would be in violation of the law from the time of Moses.

Stoning clip

It would have been too gay to have hit him with the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Lem said...

The choice of a cathedral is a reflection of ever higher and higher food prices.

Prime minister hardest hit.

MadisonMan said...

Is Silvio the car named after Silvio Berlusconi?

I think TS Eliot presaged this in his seminal, "Smacked by the Cathedral".

The Crack Emcee said...

No offense, to David and Bissage, but "Not every head of state has George Bush's cat-like reflexes" got a laugh out of me.

[Cathedral Thrower] Wait for it... Wait for it... Wait for it... BAM, Motherfucker!!!

[Berlusconi] Ow!!! God Damn it!!! That fucking hurt...

"Throwing a cathedral" should become the new "having a hissy-fit"; e.g., "What's Jeremy throwing a cathedral about this time?"
