Funny… but true.

The satire site, Scrappleface, is one of the best places to go and watch a master prick the ballons of pretentious… pricks. Scott Ott uses light irony and heavy-handed satire, both with equal facility. But a post dated May 19, 2006—Da Vinci Flick Makes Pope Admit Secret Code—exceeds even his usual level of mastery.

‘The Da Vinci Code‘ has finally forced Pope Benedict XVI to release a statement admitting that the Bible contains a “veiled mystery unknown to most of the world.”…

…Under pressure from theologians in the news media, a Vatican spokesman today admitted that the Holy Scriptures contain a hidden code, known only to a relative handful of insiders.

Read the rest to unlock the secret. I’ve tried it, and it actually works!

Wow! Now that’s masterful satire: using a factual “secret code” and its real key in a fictional post to mock a book/film that uses fake “facts” to promote a fake code in a fictional work that the author claims to be essentially true…

That’s gonna leave a mark.
