What would Scrooge McDuck say?

The Pope visited Scotland recently, to the great disappointment of all. They hired him at extravagant cost to do a magic act in a park, and all he did was wave his hands and mumble some Latin…and now they’re getting the bill.

Scottish Catholics will be told this weekend that they have to make up an £800,000 cash shortfall for the cost of the papal visit.

Congregations were already asked in the run-up to the event in September to donate cash to an appeal target of £1.7 million to fund the historic first state visit by a pontiff.

Wow. The Scots got snookered.
