2002-07-04 08:11:03 PM  
Did someone say taste?
2002-07-04 08:11:10 PM  
Three Cheers for all of the racist comments we'll see today!

Hip hip HOORAY!
2002-07-04 08:13:10 PM  
Yay, today is anti-nonwhite day isnt it, first the "anti-semitism" brought up, now the indian jokes i sense

The requirements seem tougher than for priests.

...the Pope's personal mercenaries.

Uh huh, I knew it.

Why would the Pope needs Swiss guards? Surely the guardian angels and saints will protect him from any conceivable harm?
2002-07-04 08:19:43 PM  
"Private Dhani Bachmann, who comes from India, speaks only German - he was adopted by a Swiss family when he was only five years old. "

2002-07-04 08:22:13 PM  
Wow, non-white........ um.... so?
2002-07-04 08:23:24 PM  
I'm sorry to say this, but the Catholic Church needs to brought down.
2002-07-04 08:23:59 PM  
"be" brought down. No martoonies today for Cheezie.
2002-07-04 08:24:51 PM  
Those uniforms are fruity... not that there's anything wrong with fruit.
2002-07-04 08:28:32 PM  
Those uniforms were designed by De Venci. The are just for tradition and have been around for hundreds of years.
2002-07-04 08:30:39 PM  
1337 guard? ROFL
2002-07-04 08:41:50 PM  
Are they sworn to defend your god given right to rape little children up the ass....?
2002-07-04 08:42:10 PM  
The Swiss Guard dom't use those pole arms they pack some mighty powerfull very small automatic guns under those great uniforms as well! Go Swiss!

Wolfy: They're there to stop those AW/P c4mp1ng f4gg0ts getting the VIP.

"The conditions of recruitment are severe - candidates have to be practising Catholics...and to be of irreproachable character. "

Gee, that pretty much excludes priests from serving...

The guards should wear sunglasses, and his Holiness should call them "Tha Pope's Posse". And their uniforms should be less gay. But as they are serving Catholic clergy, I don't guess that's surprising.

"O Queen Spider, what do you suggest that we do to get more indians to join our religion?"
2002-07-04 08:45:57 PM  
"Remember at the beginning of the Gulf War they kept talking about Saddam's 'Elite Republican Guard' in these hush-tones like they were the boogie-men or something. 'Yeah, we've been doing pretty good so far but we've yet to face the Elite Republican Guard.' Well. After a month of carpet-bombing they went from the Elite Republican Guard to the Republican Guard, not so elite as we had led you to believe. And after another month it went from the 'Elite Republican Guard' to the 'Republican Guard' to the 'Republicans Made This shiat Up About There Being Guards Out There'"

Did Code_Archeologist pass out already?

Fb- darling, he escaped his grave, remember? Rolled that boulder right out of the doorway and flew up to heaven to fight with Satan again.
2002-07-04 08:53:49 PM  
let the bashing begin....
2002-07-04 08:57:44 PM  
RazorGhost - Where do you stand on the issue?
2002-07-04 08:57:56 PM  
I want my own non-white elite guard!

My army of hookers just isn't cutting the mustard anymore.
2002-07-04 09:02:19 PM  
The correct expression is "cutting muster", not "mustard"
2002-07-04 09:05:30 PM  
After a bit of research, I retract my correction.
2002-07-04 09:05:37 PM  
> I'm sorry to say this, but the Catholic Church needs to > brought down.

hey cheezie, sorry you feel this way, but that won't happen anytime soon. It's also interesting to note how acceptable comments like these have become. Makes me kind of sad, really.

Look how many people make fun of Jack Chick, only to be somewhat like him; endlessly railing against religions and ideas that seem strange.
2002-07-04 09:06:07 PM  
Can one really cut mustard anyway? I know you can spread it. I personally Grey Poupon on slices of turkey or roast beef. Guilden's spicy brown mustard is great on hot dogs and burgers. I don't even bother with the normal yellow stuff.
2002-07-04 09:06:20 PM  
*hands Davide a cookie* =)

But that still don't solve my hooker problem. ;)
2002-07-04 09:10:13 PM  
dayam. I broke that but good! sorry...
2002-07-04 09:11:40 PM  
mods, please delete my posts, the first one has an open img src tag and it's farked the page. thanks
2002-07-04 09:12:05 PM  
Is it me or is this thread not displaying right on Opera?
2002-07-04 09:12:48 PM  
Virgil - What do you mean that it is sad that comments like that have become acceptable? Not everyone is Catholic, and if you take a long look into the religion itself, it is full of deviant behaviour from the leading. Besides, don't you like FREE SPEECH, FREE IDEAS, and FREEDOM period?

*burp!* Pardon me.
2002-07-04 09:13:50 PM  
Fb-, lol :)
2002-07-04 09:14:13 PM  
Telefunken messed up my post about mustard.
2002-07-04 09:15:34 PM  
Hey! CheezieDanish just ate the cookie that Loverboy586 gave me! Not fair!

Davide You can have my brownie left over from last night, deal? heh.
2002-07-04 09:21:05 PM  
Loverboy586 It's not displaying correctly for me on IE, either.
2002-07-04 09:22:12 PM  
I don't see wyh this is a big deal at all. So hes melanin heavy so what? Hes Swiss isnt he?
2002-07-04 09:26:56 PM  
I stand in the in the middle, between the stone and the See.

Do I stand alone?
2002-07-04 09:30:33 PM  
Let me add:

Who the hell cares.
