There has been a lot of discussion about the Pope and his douchebaggery-hide-a pedophile antics as of late. It seems instead of hiding eggs this Easter he would just continue to stash away child rapists and it’s up to the rest of the world to find them and place them in a basket. If you arenâ€™t caught up I do suggest you read Rebeccaâ€™s post on the subject that should clear things up for you. Although, if you arenâ€™t caught up you might be living in a box and if so you might first want to poke a few holes to let in some air. Maybe add a few plants too because you are probably lonely and you might need a little oxygen and sunlight and maybe a friend or two.
There were a string of comments in Rebecca’s post that really got me thinking. Okay, so we know the guy thinks he has a direct line to god with some sort of unlimited long distance calling plan so he can talk all he wants to the almighty but when he is sitting around after a long day of chatting, twiddling tadpoles and playing hide the fish what really does make a pope feel special? Is it the hat?
You know what? I bet it is the hat and that sharp little cross necklace and dress combo, that and maybe his bulletproof Mercedes-terrarium-popemobile! Does he still ride around in that sweet ride? Wait a sec, what is that you say? Maybe itâ€™s the pope who needs to get out of his box, or at least let a little oxygen in? Perhaps you are right.
For me it is my artwork, artistic accomplishments and work here at Skepchick that makes me feel special. But what about you dear readers? What do you own or what do you do that helps you stand out from the crowd or simply makes you feel good about yourself? What makes you feel special?
