Friday 16 December 2011

'Ave a Maria

There you were last Monday, casually browsing The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Manila website, as you do, hoping to find a link so that you could watch the installation of the city's new Archbishop, Luis Antonio Tagle.

You came across this message.

'There will be live streaming of the Rite on and'


Well, yes, excellent if you chose the second link.

If you chose the first link, however, probably not quite so excellent...

...depending on your inclination I suppose.

But certainly not what you were expecting.

Maria's from Liverpool, by the way, in case you were wondering, and offers hardcore transgender videos and an escort service.

Manila's Catholic leadership has yet to comment on the typo mix up between the .com and .net sites.

I guess they're too busy being enthralled by the bewildering antics of a bloke parading around in infelicitous clothing.

Nah. They're probably watching Maria.

  1. Manila's Catholic leadership has now issued a statement.

    A spokeswoman for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Manila Archdiocesan Office called the mistake a typo.

    She says, 'I am sorry for the confusion it has caused; it was a typo mistake.'

    The spokeswoman's name?

    Peachy Yamsuan.

    Nice one, Peachy.
