Free Beer at the Vatican

Ever since I mentioned that I love drinking Stuttgarter Hofbreu beer, they started sending me tons of it.

They just delivered 700 liters of beer to the Vatican. It’s a little embarrassing, but I can’t deny the gift of beer. It’s almost as great as the gift of apostleship.

I forgot to mention my love for Guiness beer and Ding Dongs. I hope the Press will pick that up.

I have never had that beer. What is it like?

Tastes like the used water which my horse drank yesterday. The animal has diabetes.

Did I mention that I am going to be in Rome this weekend? I will help you dispose of some of that 185 gallons of beer.

Just remember to bless my liver because it will need to be saved and possibly replaced.

I really prefer British style ales and stouts better, but hey - any beer is better than the swill mass produced in America!

Drink it and you have got one more reason to repent.

Try and stay sober so you can do your duty without hinderance.

I prefer Ho Hos, but Ding Dongs are never thrown away.

Make sure you don't grope anyone while intoxicated, I don't think you're allowed to do that.

Hey, Pope. I didn't know that... i guess i'll have to come by more often...

Anyway, here in México we'd be glad to offer you some boxes with "Corona" beer. As you should know, 5 de mayo didn't incited too much consumism this year... so we have a couple of boxes free for you...

All we ask for is Salvation... as easy as that... greetings from Tampico, México.

Most Holy Father,
Let us know if Guiness decides to pony up the free beer too. I'll have to move to Rome if that happens.

Your servant,

Maybe they can make the proper "adjustments" to include pints of Guinness in your private vending machine (along side the Ding Dong's)

It seems, as I stated below, that you could be a marketable commodity, a poster child, if you will, for beer and ding-dong companies. Just think of the possibilities...vending machines at the Vatican, with your image on the packages. A whole new trend in the Papacy!

This idea even has me excited!

Next you'll hear promotions for all things Papal: Papal Snapple, Pope's Dove Soap, etc. It would be interesting, to say the least.

Hey Pope-ee-poo,
If you do drink all that beer, I just hope the plumbing in the Vatican is newer than the rest of the place. You might want to look into an upgrade first. No, really.

Party at the Vatican! Now that would be an interesting way to reach out to the masses. (and I haven't had a Ding Dong since I was a child--they still make them?)

I must admit the first time I drank a lot of beer was with a lot of cousins and a couple of Priests out in Western Kansas. Good beer, good times. No inappropriate groping, just lots of good food, good beer and country dancin. Enjoy the brew and hold out for the ho-ho's, zingers and ding dongs!
