MSNBC cut away from the re-run of Rachel Maddow for a live broadcast of the inaugural mass of Pope Francis. Watching all the priests and bishops entering St. Peter’s in their vestments and robes reminds me of an old joke:
A drag queen stumbled into St. Patrick’s Cathedral just in time to get a seat for high mass. The priest came down the aisle in full robes, waving a smoking incense censer. The queen looked at the priest and said, “Honey, I love your outfit, but your purse is on fire.”
Cracks me up.
