(Newser) – Sarah Silverman last struck viral video gold with her "I'm fucking Matt Damon" musical ditty. On Bill Maher's HBO show last night, she debuted her newest effort: a proposal to end world hunger by selling the Vatican, which she figures is "worth, like, 500 billion dollars." And "who is more primed to be our hero than the pope? He's literally a caped crusader." Sell, move into smaller digs, and use the money to feed the poor. He'll be a hero, and "any involvement in the Holocaust—bygones."
