Dear Pope,

Does Barry Manilow know that you raid his wardrobe?

With yellow feathers in his hair and a dress cut down to there?

With all those people gathered, I bet it was pretty hot. Maybe the hottest spot north of Havana.

Wasn't that 30 years ago when they used to have a show, before it became a disco?

If the Pope had a disco, who'd start the dancing?

Why, our little children, of course.

As a dog walker, I have a client dog (a mini poodle) named Lola, to whom I sing Barry Manilow a couple of times per week.

I've seen this on TV shows were pretty women get put in the front row to make an attractive backdrop but did the pope have to fill the first three rows with women in mico bikinis ?

I hear it's the hottest spot north of Havana.

It's funny, I'm in my 40s and I think the first place I was ever exposed to that song was Liza Minnelli singing it on The Muppet Show.

Yeah, just wait 'til shiat gets real.  Punches will fly, chairs will be smashed in two, then someone will get himself shot.

thought that was john paul ii...especially after the figured out who shot who.

It's winter there at the Copa. It'll be a tad nipply for those garotas to be wearing bikinis. Instead, look for Tony, who's tending bar, likely slinging mulled holy wine, and warn him about that diamond-wearing cad named Rico.

There was Blood of Christ and a single spear thrust.

But just who crucified who?

Did he condemn materialism before he went back to his private jet?

Organ music and the Passion are always in fasion.

His name was Francis, he was a catholic
With pointy hat upon his head and giant robes with golden thread
He would eat wafers and do the blessing
And while he tried to be a star, Benedict wasn't very far
Across the Vatican, they let boys take it in the can
They were old and they had each other
Who could ask for more?

No such luck. She spent the whole evening whining, "Awwwww, Frankie! I wanna be in the show." At one point he was so annoyed he almost granted Desi a posthumous annulment but he remembered who he was and sent her out for black coffee before rejoining the Conga Line.

Inflatable Rhetoric: Did he condemn materialism before he went back to his private jet?


You could be trolling but:

He doesn't have a private jet. He flew on regular air over to Brazil.
