Oh, the humanity!
Blog Guy, can you settle a bet I have with my investment manager’s astrologer?
Wait. Doesn’t it bother you that your investment manager HAS an astrologer?
Nah, it beats the hell out of his damned Magic 8-Ball. “Should I get out of the stock market?” “Ask again later…” Sheesh.
Anyway, he says the Pope gets a summer vacation, but I think the Pope works all the time.
You’re both right. The Pope does spend time at a fairly nice summer residence, at Castelgandolfo, Italy.
Just “fairly nice?” What’s wrong with it?
So what does he do for entertainment, then?
He watches Bavarian folk dancers, nonstop. Morning, noon and night. They haul ‘em in by the truckload.
OMG! That’s inhuman! Can he at least taunt them with rude comments?
Not while the cameras are on.
So hold on. Are you telling me the Pope…
Right. Doesn’t even know he missed “Shark Week.”
