  1. Lawns are sacrosanct (even in drought-stricken California), some believe. The Pope is no exception. Here’s a recent example:

    From The Garlic News Service:

    By correspondent Robert A. Vella (1st generation Italian and eater of all things garlic-y) at the Vatican

    Pope Francis addressed an endearing crowd of thousands today who had hoped to hear the pontiff rail against the evils of capitalism and the fossil fuel perpetrators of catastrophic climate change. However, their hopes turned to anger quite unexpectedly shortly after Francis began to speak from his Basilica balcony high above St. Peter’s Square.

    Pope: “In nomine Patris et Filii et Spiritus Sancti…”

    Crowd: [applause]

    Pope: “Hey, ala u WOPs… get offa my lawn!!!”

    Crowd: “Boo!”

    Out of character, Francis then gave the crowd a rude middle finger salute as he whipped his cloak over his shoulder and returned to the papal chambers.

    One obviously annoyed worshiper was heard over the roar of the crowd.

    “Canna u believa dat guy?” he yelled. “I’ma his frickin’ gardener!”


  2. I believe he reproduced a version of this in Othello. Genius.
