Well... since they'd decided they weren't doing any more episodes, perhaps not. :)

The Pope lives in Italy.

At the risk of provoking another bout of silliness, Vatican City isn't Italian, it's a country in it's own right.

But of course, Vatican City is "in" Italy because it's completely surrounded by it, and this is obviously what you meant. Or maybe you mean his two other residences; the official one is in Vatican City though.

It occurred to me that Vatican City isn't a country, but it is a state. Then I realised that I don't actually know the difference between a country and a state - so I looked it up on Yahoo Answers and found this:

Quote:
Resolved Question: What is the difference between a state, country, nation, Constituent country and sovereign state?

Best Answer - Chosen by Voters
A country is self explanetory, consisting of countyies. A state is part of a nation. A sovereing state was part of the british empire.


So I hope that's clear to everyone now! ;(

Judging by the spelling you've accidentally clicked onto medieval-yahoo there Bob;)

Nah - can't be. The best answer was "chosen by voters" so that would make it anachronistic.

Mind you - it could mean:

A country is self ex-planetory - ie outside the planet; that would also explain the "consisting of countyies" which is an organisational unit with which I am unfamiliar.

And maybe it meant to read:

"A hovering state was part of the british empire." That is, there was a little known arial state (an idea which never took off hehe) - perhaps an early attempt to communicate with these ex-planetory states?

Perhaps a 'hoovering state.'

That would bring us neatly back to Father Ted's housekeeper.
