My Papal Uniform

One of the main difficulties about being Pope (aside from dealing with world poverty) is the time it takes for me to undress just so that I can use the restroom. It’s freakin’ ridiculous.

I have to take off three layers of clothes, and then neatly hang everything up in my stall. The whole process takes about 5 minutes to undress and another 10 minutes to put the clothes back on properly.

This is especially troublesome for me since I have a small bladder.

There's no "pope-hole" for a quick pee-pee?

Or better still, go enlarge your bladder. (If it's not fouling any Vatican rule, that is) =)

I have the same exact problem. Isn't it funny how alike being the Pope and being a female impersonator is? We both wear gowns, we both wear snappy hats, we both like our rings kissed. Have a blessed weekend Your Holiness!

Most Holy Father,

At least you don't have to wear pantyhose.

Your Servant,

Your Holiness,

I don't see why you have to take everything off. What do you wear under the robe? Just pick up the skirt and do your thing. What's the problem?

Respectfully yours,

Just lift & do it. Are you wearing a girdle or something?

I must say you are looking very well in that photo, theres a definite Papal pink glow in your cheeks, radiant if I may say. Getting it all off your chest by blogging seems to be doing you a power of good!

I'm with Tan Lucy and Jamie Dawn. What is the meaning of the shawl you're wearing in the pic? Doesn't that get hot?

So what are all the little buttons on the front of your vestment for?

As someone already mentioned, just hike that puppy up and gitrdone. Women have had to learn to pee in the roadside woods with minimal squattage, you should try the girly method of lift, aim and fire as well. No really, it'll work.

Dear Mr. Pope,
Is there some Catholic rule that disallows you from wearing a catheter and bag during the day? I'm really not up on all the intricate rules of your Papal office.

lol...over time I've learned the benefits of going pantyless for a woman. No long lines. And as a tree hugger, there is a way to do this drip free ...for you may I suggest a portable urinal...like the kind they use in hospitals or in travel.
