The Shroud of Turin


I don’t think the Shroud of Turin is really an image of Christ.
But, the shroud controversy has got me thinking about a new business idea.

Due to my normal to oily skin, I wear a herbal facial masque every night to keep my skin looking soft and clean. It also helps hide my blemishes and tighten my pores.

Most of the Cardinals think I’m gay for doing this, but I don’t really care. My stylist tells me to ignore the ridicule and just focus on getting healthy skin. I think he’s right.

Anyway, I leave the clay masque on my face for about 30 minutes before cleaning it off with a warm Egyptian cotton hand towel. And when I’m done, I can see a clay imprint of my face on my towel.

I bet you that if I let it dry, I could sell these towels on eBay. What do you think? I can call it “Wash Cloth of the Pope.”

That's what I like about you. You're a practical pontif - always thinking of the bigger picture.

Oh, your Holiness, I think you've found an amazing pocket of profit potential. It'll be up there with the Vision of Mary Toast and the Hello Kitty Toast!

Ebay! If you can't find it there, it doesn't exist!

K'vitsh--I try to be practical. I'm always thinking of ways to boost our income without cheating people out of money.

I'm working on the toast idea, too. I like Rye bread, and I tend to think Rye toast will last longer than your standard white bread.

You can marry your pope image ideas with your fondness for vending machines!

Picture this: Pope Gear vending machines. And not just in Vatican City, but worldwide. People could get some Twinkes, a coke, and a pope image trinket all at the same place!

Cut me in for 20%, Iguana needs a new boat.

OOOOOhhh! That toilet paper idea isn't so bad!

But have you considered soap called "Pope on a Rope?" Maybe I missed that on some earlier post. People buy soap on a rope. Maybe Your Holiness could squeeze the soap each day when you shower into an image of yourself. Stick a rope into it, and there you go. Pope on a Rope.

If you advertise that the cloth has healing powers, I'm sure sales will quadruple. Think about it.

I'm sure some crazy Irishwoman would buy it.

Well, if you ARE gay, you'd better hit the gym, Pope Joey! You could use some toning up.

I think you're just a tad metrosexual.

Now that is a great idea.
