POPE: "Go on a Crusade."
FB: "I don't want to."
POPE: "Go on a Crusade or I'll excommunicate you."
FB: "Fine."

FB goes and conquers some minor Germanic tribes


Pope: "That's not what I meant! Go on a Crusade!"
FB: "Fine."

FB goes and conquers northern Italy


Pope: "That's not what I meant! Go on a Crusade RIGHT NOW or I will excommunicate you. See?!?"

Pope holds up signed order of excommunication


FB: "FINE."
