Turns out it was an old flame, not an Immaculate Conception

Have your say

Did you see that story about the nun from the Italian city of Rieti who went to the hospital with stomach cramps and found out that she’d gone into labour?

She originally denied knowing how she’d become pregnant!

This was good. Immaculate Conception, they cried excitedly.

People arrived at the hospital with teddy bears and flowers.

They always do when these things happen.

Someone has an obscure image of Jesus on their toast and they’re queuing all the way around Rome and back again just to get a glimpse.

But it all fizzled out pretty quickly when the nun admitted it was an old flame who’d done the dirty deed.

How boring!
