Unlike at TNT, we at #totaldrama excel in following up on stories. As an ace reporter for #totaldrama I can tell you that uncovering this next gem was worth the effort. Some time ago my esteemed colleague HelloWorld reported here that Fr. Robert Ballecer may absolve himself from his service to Leo Laporte for a more fulfilling role serving Pope Jorge Mario Bergoglio .
After much digging we found this is not the first time a phony baloney My Little Pony story came to the TWiT airwaves. After TWiT hemorrhaged talent in early 2014 a story was concocted that Pope Francis tapped Ballecer’s shoulder to get in the big game. According to TWiT founder Leo Laporte “he decided to turn down” that opportunity and remain at the SHiThouse. A story meant to assuage the fears of TWiT fans worldwide after the parade of exiting talent. The following tweets were Ballecer’s cryptic way of saying something without saying anything, a technique mastered by Laporte himself.
The first tweet spoke about the offer:
That moment when you realize the job offer you thought was "a joke" is actually an incredible opportunity.

The second spoke on the dilemma of who to serve; Jesus Christ’s human representative on Earth at the city-state established by Pope Pius XI and King Victor Emmanuel III of Italy in 1929. Home to such works of art as Michelangelo’s frescos on the Sistine Chapel ceiling. Or Leo Laporte, an ego-maniacal, blowhard who waddles around the chicken capital of the world in a warehouse littered with malfunctioning PET computers and discarded soup containers.
The most difficult choice a person need make is not between good and evil, but between good and "gooder" #JesuitDiscernment

Never has a #scoop been of more woe that of Ballecer and his boss Leo.
Either it’s a total lie made up to dupe fans or he actually turned the Pope down to work at TWiT. Pick your poison.
