What Are They Looking At?

Captions, anyone?

(And, thanks to the looks of the Papal Vesturemometer -- today wearing the ermine mozzetta within the confines of the Apartment for the first time -- we can tell that it was COLD today in Rome.)

B16: *whisper* "Is that pilgrim woman seriously holding up a copy of The Da Vinci Code for me to bless?"
Georg: *whisper* "Shh - their vision is based on movement..."

B16: Oh, look, there's Clemens!
George (thinking to himself): Rats!

Pope: "I thought for sure we had that door enlarged wide enough when we remodelled this place."

Georg: "I know. And Bernie Law still has to come in sideways! Unbelievable."

Georg: "Boss, I keep getting emails from those rightwingers at the NAC - you know, the ones who were jumping and screaming in the piazza when your election was announced - saying you should not wear the pectorcal cross with the winter mozetta."

Pope: "That's just like those guys. They want me to have all power to rule over princes and dismiss governments, but they won't let me dress myself my way."

Photographer: "Yeah thanks, Your Holiness, but this next photo is for the 'Daughters of Trent 2007 Pin-Up Calendar' - so would Your Holiness mind leaving the room now, and Monsignor, you can get undressed behind that screen there, and kindly place that maniple, well, you know where the maniple goes . . . "

Pope: "Georg, where did you get this snappy gold cord?"

Georg: "Why, on eBay, Holiness. Just go to:

That 'sacerdote' guy's got all the best deal on Vatican tatt. "

Georg, do you think anybody noticed the lace rochet?

B16 & Don Georg looking at a portrait (sic) of Ingrid.......

B16: She could have been 'first lady of the Vatican'

Georg: Yes, if CWN hadn't put a block on the rumour!

Never mind.........

I think that Georg is saying that he opened the shower curtain that morning and found Rocco there with a camera and a big smile on his face.

Hey John Mastai!

You are well named - you obviously even think (or it is project?) like your wrongly-beatified namesake!

I just hope all the Jewish orphans in your neighborhood are very careful!

B16, whispering: Didn't you get the Ermine memo, Georg?

Georg, whispering, in monsignorial pining whimper: No Holiness, Clemens probably had the Focolarini take it out of my mailbox. He hates me, you know, and is so jealous of my good looks and stylish figure. Punish him, Holiness, punish him, leave him off the consistory list, pretty please?

This is not the first time the ermine cape has been worn inside. It was worn for the Diplomatic reception earlier this month.

Fungulo, chill out. You sound like you are accessing this blog by using a laptop that you stole from a nurse you killed at Belview. Time to up the dosage!

Hey John Mastai:

What if, just if, I am in fact already chilled out, there's no laptop, no nurse, and no dosage.

What if I'm right?
