Pretty Tough To Re-Gift

When you’re Pope you get all sorts of ceremonial gifts wherever you go.  It’s almost as annoying as being asked to bless every goddam thing people thrust at you from plastic Jesus bobbleheads to used Big Mac boxes. The Vatican donates junkie gifts to orphanages and other Italian charities. If they’re eyesore paintings or pictures that really suck, it gives them to Associations for the Blind and Visually-Impaired.

President Evo Morales gave Pope Francis a “Communist crucifix” as a gift during His Holiness’s visit to Bolivia.  The Pope was underwhelmed and clearly rolled his eyes when Morales tried to explain the significance of the garage-sale sculpture. Part of the story included the fact that Bolivia is a very poor country and would not be offended by a Papal loan.
