Pope Francis Takes The Holiest Of Selfies With A Couple Of Newlyweds!

Filed under: Twitter

bjf0gjxicaa5irv1

When he's not dropping F-bombs on the Vatican, he's dropping photobombs!

Okay, so this selfie he took with a newlywed couple isn't a photobomb because, as you might know, this Pope is kind of AH-Mazing, and gladly posed for the pic!

Yea, thus it was proclaimed from on high that it was a selfless thing to take a selfie! And lo, there was much selfie-ing throughout the land! Amen!

He took the post-nuptial photo at a general audience at the Vatican last week! So, it's your move now, Ellen DeGeneres! Try to outselfie this selfie!

However, we'd love to see the Pontifex take a selfie with a dove, on his pope mobile, and with Olivia Pope (aka Kerry Washington).

Or maybe just with the Ark of the Covenant…we know he has it. He's too cool not to have it, right?

Special Delivery! Condoms Stuffed With Cocaine Were Headed To The Vatican! Who Was The Unholy Package Meant For?!

Filed under: DrugsWacky, Tacky & TrueEtc.GIFs

cocain priest edit

What in the name of all that is holy is going on at The Vatican?!

Someone in the tiny Catholic enclave was expecting a package that was concealing 14 condoms filled with cocaine!

German customs officials discovered the drugs hidden inside a shipment of cushions coming from South America. The package was addressed only to the Vatican’s postal office, meaning anyone there could have gone to pick it up!

Is there a clergyman with a coke habit living in the Apostolic Palace??

The condoms

Pope Francis Lets The F-Bombs Fly As He Accidentally Swears In His Morning Blessings At The Vatican! Oops!

Filed under: Oops!PolitikHIGHlariousNews

pope francis accidentally uses the f word

Holy shiz! Literally!!

Pope Francis shocked the world today by accidentally swearing in front of thousands at the Vatican!

Say WHAAAAT?!

Reportedly, the Pope was giving his daily blessings when he let the f-bomb fly freely!

Francis was supposed to say the Italian word "caso" (which means example/case) when he slipped up and said "cazzo" which apparently means f*ck in Italian!

Talk about a major mixup! Poor guy!

However, the mistake is not a new one!

Apparently the slip is common for non-native Italian speakers and seeing as how Pope Francis' first language is Spanish, the mistake is pretty much excused!

But it doesn't make it any less HIGHlarious!

Talk about the best Pope ever!!!

Pope's Peace Doves Attacked By Birds Of Prey! See The Dramatic Pic HERE!

Filed under: Scary!Attack!BirdsCrazzzzy

The Pope released some doves who were promptly attacked by birds of prey!

No! Poor peace doves!

The pope was giving his weekly Sunday Angelus prayer, in front of the tens of thousands of people who gather in the Vatican, along with two kids, when something unexpected happen!

After finishing his prayer for those in the Ukraine, the kids next to him released two white peace doves, which began to flapp away into the beautiful Italian sky… until they were attacked!!

Two birds of prey, a seagull and a crow, flew in and assaulted the peace doves!

The seagull pinned one of the doves against a wall and pecked at it but the bird escaped while the crow snatched and pecked at the other bird before it too escaped.

The magic power of the pope helped the birds get away with their lives!!

Kinda symbolic… the peace doves were attacked by birds of prey but overcame adversity and rose above it to fly off into the sunset!!

Check out a video of the dove release AFTER THE JUMP!!
