FTFA: The Pope intends to drive it

Is he trying to become ridiculous or cute?

This guy seems legit, at least in the PR department. All future Popes are pissed that they have to act humble and such.
Also, what's a Popemoblie?

Hiya friends! Ralph Spoilsport, Ralph Spoilsport Motors- the world's largest new used and used new car automobile dealership- Ralph Spoilsport Motors- right here in the city of EMPHYSEMA! Let's just look at the extras on this fabulous car! Wire-wheel spoke fenders and two-way sneeze wind vents, star-studded mud guard, sponge-coated edible steering column, chrome fender dents and factory air conditioned air from our fully factory-equipped air conditioned factory! It's a beautiful car, friends, with doors to match! Birch's Blacklist says this car was stolen but for you, friends, a complete price: only two-ninety-five hundred dollars in easy monthly payments of twenty dollars a week, twice a week and never on Sunday!

And if he does, will it be the bobble headed kind, the classic metallic Christ, Buddy Christ or the glow in the dark Messiah?

/that car is freakin' cute
//the idea of the Pope wheeling around in it is even cuter.

Plastic hula Jesus? Wouldn't that be a little too retro. He's the Pope, not a hipster. Perhaps a bumper sticker stating "God is my co-pilot"?

All I know is that when I see old beat up cars w/ rosaries hanging from the rear view mirror, you have to get around and in front of those idiots as fast as you can. They cannot drive, and I doubt his Holiness is any different.

A running joke in Rome has to do with Vatican license plates.  The all start with SCV - Stata Citta Vaticana, or Vatican City State.  The joke is that SCV really means, Se Christe Vedesse - "If Christ could see this."

Once you see him driving it, it will be ineffably cute.

Tiny car, tiny Pope, and when he gets out, dozens of giant angels in clown costumes pour out behind him. Fellini is already making a movie built around the car.

i know. its amazing that they haven't simply killed him off yet.

/then made him a saint after they do it.
//its kind of traditional for them

It brings a little joy to my old atheist heart to see a man so humble and a car so tiny. Enjoy him while you can--he might really be the last Pope.

Molavian: This guy has to be eating babies alive in his spare time, or something equally as heinous.  No Catholic is this good without major skeletons in the closet.


Y'know, I appreciate the sentiment, having been raised Catholic, but this guy seems legit. If you've ever studied under Jesuits, you'd recognize the pattern. He's at the 'cleanup' step of a new assignment. This will last until everyone has been chastened and then the 'building' phase begins. Once 'building' is over comes time for reflection, and the cycle begins again.

The Jesuits are a great example of faith through works, and along with the Franciscans (even if they're often at odds with each other) are the two orders I most respect, even though I no longer believe in a god.

And after the Pope has them all bow their heads in prayer, the Cardinals thinking "I clearly can not choose the cup in front of me...."

RALPH: Hiya, friends! Ralph Spoilsport, owner and operator of the world's biggest dealership west of Baalbeck. As you know, we're overdosed again with all tastes and kilos. Let's just take a look at some of these fabulous lids! The LaGuardia Report says this key should be copped for ten thousand, five hundred dollars, in easy monthly sentences of a year-to-life, and nobody down. Our complete price to you, including sticks and stems and seeds, wine-soaked and sugar-cured, completely clean for your smoking pleasure, the complete price-only what the traffic will allow, in unmarked bills, delivered to me, Ralph Icebag, in a plain brown wrapper, by a brown-shoed square in the dead of night! Let's take a taste of this fabulous Yucatan Blue, scored to you from the sky-blue waters of that beautiful Mexican bay, hand-picked by naked little froggy native boys in their tight leather aprons, running through the fields by the sea and the sea crimson sometimes like fire and the glorious sunsets and the fig trees in the Alameda gardens yes yes and all the queer little streets and pink and blue and yellow houses and the rose gardens and the jessamine and geraniums and cactuses and Gibraltar as a boy where I was a flower of the mountains yes where I put the rose in my hair like the Andalusian girls used yes and how she kissed me under the Moorish wall and I thought well as well him as another and she asked me would I to say yes my mountain flower and first I put my arms around him yes and drew her down to me so I could feel her breasts all perfumed yes and his heart was going like mad and yes I said yes I will yes ... yes ... yes ... yes ... [fading] Yes-s-s-s-s

Hipster Pope likes obscure cars. :O
 
2013-09-11 06:09:17 PM
The Pope goes to New York. He is picked up at the airport by a limousine. He looks at the beautiful car and says to the driver, ''You know, I hardly ever get to drive. Would you please let me?''
The driver is understandably hesistant and says, ''I'm sorry, but I don't think I'm supposed to do that.''
But the pope persists, ''Please?''
The driver finally lets up. ''Oh, all right, I can't really say no to the pope.''
So the pope takes the wheel, and boy, is he a speed demon! He hits the gas and goes around 100 mph in a 45 zone. A policeman notices and pulls him over. The cop walks up and asks the pope to roll down the window. Startled and surprised, the young officer asks the pope to wait a minute. He goes back to his patrol car and radios the chief.
Cop: ''Chief, I have a problem.''
Chief: ''What sort of problem?''
Cop: ''Well, you see, I pulled over this guy for driving way over the speed limit but it's someone really important.''
Chief: ''Important like the mayor?''
Cop: ''No, no, much more important than that.''
Chief: ''Important like the governor?''
Cop: ''Wayyyyyy more important than that.''
Chief: ''Like the president?''
Cop: ''More.''
Chief: ''Who's more important than the president?''
Cop: ''I don't know, but he's got the pope DRIVING for him!''

sure there are. historically they were usually just martyred by their own people to protect the status quo far more quickly than this. how they missed this one i have no idea.

Every Order is/has been at odds with the Jesuits, along with several Popes.
