As a good Catholic schoolboy, Scrapbook thought walking round with burnt bits of palm leaves smeared on his forehead was most entertaining. The practices of Ash Wednesday were evidently lost on Sky News’ Kay Burley this week as she proceeded to speculate at length as to why US vice-president Joe Biden “looks like he’s walked into a door”. Burley even joked that bruising may have resulted from a sporting accident on his visit to the Olympics in Vancouver.
You can almost see her wincing off camera as she apologises (scroll to the beginning to hear the initial gaffe)!
That’ll be ten Our Fathers and five Hail Marys, Kay.
