(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."

Gooner and Rob, I hope that you read your posts back to yourself and realize that you are total gibberish. None of our business? The Catholic sheep will not criticize Pope Beingadick so, Silverman must step in. Catholic church is in no way private and it absolutely is totally unrelated to Nobel. Please stop and think before you post.

I believe in a man in the sky floating on a cloud as much as i believe in Santa Clause and the Easter Bunny and I also believe that all religions should give there spoils to help against World Hunger, ALL RELIGIONS!!!
