Vatican Fashion

Here’s what the newest pope emeritus will be wearing this spring:

Gone will be the red “Prada” loafers, replaced by brown shoes made in Leon, Mexico.

A pair was given to the Pope on a recent trip there. After Thursday, the Pope’s “fisherman’s ring” will also be destroyed.

You know how hard it is to coordinate your accessories.

3 barks and woofs on “Vatican Fashion

  1. The whole pope-passing thing has allowed all sorts of riffs, giving comedians and people like MB to play around with it. Last night on MPR’s Marketplace a fellow submitted his application to be pope. His qualifications included well honed public speaking skills and an MA in religion as well as a PhD. in something or other. It was all very impressive. I’ll be looking for who comes up with the job – there’s turmoil in the admission office from what I read.

    • It’ll be interesting to see who among the candidates doesn’t have an altar boy or two hidden in a confessional. Who needs closets for skeletons when there are so many little alcoves to hide one’s misdeeds?

  2. I can understand why they’d destroy the ring. They certainly wouldn’t want it turning up on Craigslist or Ebay.

    I have nothing snarky to say about this that hasn’t been said already all over the Internet.
