The Best Joke Ever[edit]

This must be saved:

Pope Hilarius was, of course, the funniest of all popes. From his name, Americans get the English word hilarious and its sister, hilarity. His humor was a beacon of light in the church during an otherwise dark time, converting many barbarians and heretics with his stand-up comedy. His "men do this; women do that" joke has been passed down from comedian to comedian all the way to the present day. (He was thanked in the credits of Last Comic Standing.) He is also the source of the famous joke that ends in "... when I woke up, my pillow was gone!"

Indeed. wow, that's um...strange. Are you sure this is true or are you trying to spread rumors on Wikipedia? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.133.188.33 (talk) 19:38, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

Now THAT is hilarious. Allthenamesarealreadytaken (talk) 21:33, 28 August 2012 (UTC)

Other stuff[edit]

Okay...I don't think this entry is right or accurate, but maybe that's just me.

Well, the Council of Ephesus definitely wasn't held in 449... john k 04:53, 12 May 2005 (UTC)

Who edited my entry without even discussing it? My high school religion teacher told me Pope Hilarius was the funniest of all popes and I stand by it!

I concur with the last guy!

I too have always taken secret pleasure in Pope Hilarius, though I hope it doesn't show in the sources and details I've added. --Wetman 07:51, 25 May 2005 (UTC)

well, now i know a ton about pope hilarious. my joke was fun while it lasted.... (especially the person who didn't change it and just wrote the first sentence on this discussion board.) i vowed not to change it back after i did the original joke, however it was funny that somebody random kept putting my joke back

Hilarious from Hilarius?[edit]

Hey guys, if "to be hilarious" doesn't come from Pope Hilarius, where does it come from then? --Shultz 06:24, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

They both derive from the Latin root hilaris, meaning merry. It's a case of common ancestry, rather than direct descent. grendel|khan 06:48, 15 January 2006 (UTC)
I see. I guess somehow, "merry" turned into "quite funny" somewhere down the line. I thought Hilarious came from Hilarius much like pious came from Pius. --Shultz 09:28, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

I see time-traveling! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 208.102.210.163 (talk) 00:04, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Feast Day[edit]

There are conflicting sources on the feast day of Saint Hilarius Catholic Online says 28 Feb. The Catholic Encyclopedia from where this article was basically lifted says 17 Nov. I suspect that 17 Nov. is the old calendar and 28 Feb. is the new but I have no evidence so I put them both as options. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Commment (talkcontribs) 07:53, 15 December 2007 (UTC)

Greatest Pope Ever?[edit]

Somebody told me Catholic Monthly named Pope Hilarius the "Greatest Pope of all Time." His name was Joey Bananas, and I don't know if I should trust him. Can anyone confirm that Pope Hilarius either (a) won the award or (b) Joe Bananas is a verified Wikipedia source? Thank you very much! Viki Male (talk) 03:58, 26 December 2007 (UTC)
