Exploding Popes, Etc....

Vaguely recall hearing on the radio recently that Pius XII was badly embalmed, turned emerald green while lying in state, and then exploded, sending Swiss Guards by the dozen collapsing in swoons of 'orror. I'm surprised they managed to keep that out of the media for so long. It wasn't all that long ago.I think I was about 12 or so. I believe Paul VI exploded too, and I saw a photo of John XXIII lying in state, his face kind of navy-blue, although I don't think he actually blew up in public. I don't know what all this means, except that I have a desperately morbid mind.
I went to therapy, which consisted of working on a self-esteem pie chart.!Oh,the anguish. Jeezus! By the time I was able to get to LIDL all the paint boards were gone. In fact I don't think they'd had any, the swine. I got 2 metallic markers for 99p, though. Also picked up a few cheapo frames for my contibution to the Things From Here show.
