    When I was a kid, I used to think canonized meant getting shot out of a cannon.

    When I was a kid and my dad would go to work, I would beg him to stay home and play with me. He, of course, would tell me he had to go to work or he'd be fired. I always pictured him staying home from work while the fire department had to come put out the blaze in his office.
     
  5. When I was in second or third grade, our teacher told us it was time to take a lavatory break. I walked down the hall to the laboratory and couldn't figure out why no one else was there, and why she wanted us to pee in there.

    As a kid, I thought a cease fire was an actual fire set to mark the end of a battle.

    Similarly, my dad always told me he had to leave to go make money, which I took too literally.

    Glad to see a Pope, who was known for holding his flock to strict interpretations of the rules, is being fast-tracked to sainthood in a clear flaunting of said rules.

    Hypocrisy, thy name is the Roman Catholic Church.

    Yeah, especially the firing the pope's dead body out of a cannon. Would he be wearing those red slippers that they put on him during the visitation?

    Wasn't Hunter S. Thompson canonized?

    The five-year wait was waived for Mother Theresa as well.
    It is done from time to time.

    Also, he could be beatified without ever being canonized.

    When I was really little, I sneezed once and asked my mom to wipe the "God Bless You" off my face.
