What's it like in the Popemobile?

Lonely? Rap music? Cool? Warm?



Hot??? 8-)

I've got nothing against Josef Ratzinger, and I don't mean to offend anybody (I'm a refugee Catholic myself), but ain't it all really show biz??? ;)

Fishbowl? Telephone booth? Confessional? Bear cage? Hearse?

Does it have an intercom? Whom can he speak to? The chauffeur? God?

It's just about the strangest thing I ever saw. :lol:

Truly, it's only the absurdity of being visible to the public while hermetically-sealed in a glass container that's striking to me, not anything to do with the denominational or faith-based aspect of it.

I'm a refugee Catholic myself, and I mean no disrespect to the old guy, but there's something about the display which is just hilarious to me. I mean, what if he farts in there? :lol:

P.S. -- To be absolutely clear, I'm not ridiculing the man, or the Papal office, but rather the packaging. :devil:
