"By Toutatis, you found the mistletoe for the magic potion, Asterix?!"

d. w. horstkoetter said...

My first idea was a dig at his eyebrows and his mother wanting to trim them for the "telly," but I think this one better:

To George Bush, "You want me to say God bless America? Are you serious?"

Steve said...

"You want me to play Dumbledore?"

or

"You finally get what I was trying to say about Sharia?"

Chris said...

Not Prince Hamlet --

You totally stole my caption. :-)

saint egregious said...

That Goddam Waits is right: Misery is the river of the world-wide Anglican Communion!

Alternate: If God's away on business, what the flunk am I doing here!

Great Scott! Marty, you fixed the Flux Capacitor!

James F. McGrath said...

"Now that Lambeth is almost over, I've got to get back to the TARDIS"

OR

"I've been struggling to keep from frowning the whole week, and now I think I'm stuck like this!"

OR

"Yes, Gene, of course this smile is genuine and I'm genuinely pleased to see you..."

Brando said...

An adequate respose to the most recent Left Behind novel.

Rowan discovers the delights of public self-flagellation

Michael F. Bird said...

Thief! Since you've got more responses than I did, you can have it. Here's my caption:

"Ha ha ha ha ... you fools ... the end is nigh ... ha ha ha ... GAFCON will destroy us all ... ha ha ha ... Gene Robinson ... TEC ... repent I tells you, repent ... before we perish ... ha ha ha ... the end is come ... EPA ... EPA ... EEEEPA."

EPA means environmental protection agency and is ripped off from Grandpa Simpson's apocalyptic vision from the Simpson's Movie.

So you all will vote for my impeachment??? Thank you so much!!

Jon said...

After hearing so much about homosexuality... Rowan decided to explore a little further...

steph said...

Nya de Nya, I fooled y'all.

I'm gonna go back down the yellow brick road to the Emerald city 'cause I'm really the Wizard of Oz.

Why hello there, children!

"A blowout in the budget? What a crazy idea. Wherever did you get such a story from?!" (followed by weak laughter)

Carrying his sportsbag and wearing his whistle, the referee for the Lambeth Conference just before being led away for a drugs test.

Christian said...

Surprise and delight at Lambeth, as news arrives of a new colony of several million Anglicans on Mars - and all of them fully loyal to the Global Communion.

steph said...

Ben, the Betty Ford Centre has just telephoned me to ask me to inform you that Kim is right. The referee says Kim wins.

j. k. said...

Upon hearing that one of the journalists had actually read the sharia lecture, Dr Williams seemed pleasantly surprised.

H Phelps said...

"Don't eat the brown acid."

Kevin Taylor said...

"My best Joker impersonation? Check this one out…"

The Archbishop remembers his book ...

According to Athanasius, it was a Saturday when the emperor ordered Alexander to admit Arius (at the liturgy on the following day). Faced with this ultimatum, Alexander (accompanied by Athanasius' friend, the presbyter Macarius) withdrew to the episcopal church (Hagia Eirene) and prayed that either he or Arius might die before morning. Arius meanwhile, smitten by 'the necessities of nature', retired to a public lavatory, and died, apparently from some kind of internal haemorrhage or rupture. The emperor and the city were duly shocked and edified. (Arius, p.81)

... wonders if the Church Father could have been right, and suddenly considers that history might repeat itself.

Ren said...

"Ah, finally, someone who understood Arius: Heresy and Tradition!"

terce said...

Oooh, Virtue, you've found my G spot!

Michael Westmoreland-White said...

Gene's decided to go home early?

Mork said...

Your Holiness, I thought you were in Sydney not Lambeth!!!!

By George! I've finally got it! A cunning plan! I shall become an alternative healer in a slightly tacky clinic in suburbia. No one will ever find me.

k.m. delport said...

"This is my Jim Broadbent impersonation!"

Eschatalogical you said...

I think the Irish Times should be the winner:

Such as the refreshingly candid bishop who earlier this week and, in private, on seeing again the omnipresent Bishop Gene Robinson, that actively gay man whose ordination precipitated the current crisis within Anglicanism, wondered openly, "has he not been shot yet?"

Zachary said...

You get to play PLINKO!!!

ftait said...

Remember that 60's song by Napoleon XIV? He's probably saying something like this:

"They're coming to take me away! Ha Haaa, Ho Ho, Hee Hee . . ."

It's ALL maddening, isn't it? I think the Photog caught him in the middle of the ". . . Haaa . . ."

Will someone kindly inform those two dark patches of hair about my eyes about gravity?

Benedict has really come out?

John Hartley said...

"So long, and thanks for all the fish!"

Bret said...

After weeks of careful thought, Rowan finally conceives a clever, and apparently humorous, way to reapply the acronym GAFCON!

Mike Higton said...

Yes - but I've got the last parachute!

rob2 said...

What did you say? Time to meet the FOCAs?

Ashley John Moyse said...

Concerned he forgot something, Rowan thinks to himself . . . "Ok, I've got my clerical collar, my bible is in my man-bag, my eyebrows are freshly Spocked . . . oh S%*t! I forgot my pants!"

Christopher.Hugh.Greene said...

"Delighted at the thought of Gene and Cathy bowing out? Nope. Much better than that -- I just save 15% on my auto insurance with Geico!"

jason said...

Q. What are you gonna do once this whole thing falls apart?

A. I'm goin' to Disneyland!

Looney said...

He reminds me of Obe-Wan.

"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."

Which also reflects his current position quite well.

Alexandrian Son said...

I've got Benedict in here, so I hope you enjoy Africa! Cheerio!

"Frodo! Did Sam fall for the depantsing spell again????"

Christopher said...

In yet another innovative move for his congregation, the Archbishop advertises his plan to replace rather conventional communion wine with the trendy Red Bull Energy Drink.
