Here are some possibilities.....
1. I’ll close my eyes and think of Rome.
2. I’ll close my eyes and think of that sweet young boy from 'Home Alone'.
3. Jeez, what a time to forget my f***ing Rosary beads.
4. Hey, I always thought Mecca was a type of espresso coffee.
5. That Babaganoush was yummo… Mohammed couldn’t have been all that evil.
6. O my Allah and Mary, I farted. Jeez, lasagne and babaganoush sure don't mix.
8. [add your own - write it in the comments below and I'll add them in here]
The press was heavily censored. Footage of the pope's holy Cheer-Leader squad, for instance, was not available on american TV networks:
The latest model Mercedes-Benz popemobile is not only armour-plated and bullet-proof, but is able to instantly "de-materialise" projectiles such as eggs, tomatoes, or red paint thrown by protesters. This was expensive technology, but essential because it ensured that the vehicle remained photogenic for the papparazzi at all times.
While on the topic of popemobiles, FunkyPix2 soon intends to publish a photo-gallery history, but here's a sneak preview. In this photo, Pope John XXIII inspects his new stretch Mercedes-Benz in 1960. It looks identical to the one from 1930. Typical...
But while we're on the topic, here's a photo of Thailand's answer to the popemobile:
After the visit to Turkey, George invited Benedict to a secret ranch in an unknown location somewhere in the E.U. to "blow off some steam" (probably a useful idea for a guy with 70 years worth of sperm backup). His mate George offered him some used orange overalls, but Benedict opted for the macho military image. He hinted that he was considering sending 2 of his Swiss-Guards to Iraq as a gesture of thanks for the gift of the papal dune-buggy and special Star-Wars crash-helmet (able to detect and destroy incoming thunderbolt missiles from heaven).
"I haven't had so much fun since I last faked a Bar Mitzvah in disguise", he giggled. "Yee-HAAAH!"
