Dennis Rodman wants to razz the Popemobile around Rome to campaign for black Pontiff
CRAZY ol’ Dennis Rodman has been a busy boy lately. First off, he visited North Korea and gave Kim Jong Un a hug, before The Glorious Leader flew into the sky completing a series of 147s in the clouds while farting orchids. Dennis Rodman stood by with garish clothing and a load of tattoos as usual.
And now, the NBA legend has the Catholic church in his sights, intending to ride around Italy in the Popemobile while campaigning for a black Pope. Rodman wants Cardinal Peter Turkson to be elected and, while he’s there, he’ll team up with A Notable Bookmaker Who Won’t Be Getting A Free Advert Here to extol the virtue of papal betting.
Speaking to TMZ, he said:
“I want to be anywhere in the world that I’m needed… I want to spread a message of peace and love throughout the world.”
That’d be the peace and love Rodman there, who has charged with a number of ‘domestic disturbances’ with a host of wives, including a big scrap with Carmen Elektra, an arrest for domestic violence with another fiancee, another occasion where he plead ‘no contest’ to spousal battery charges… not to mention being arrested for drunk driving without a license and a man who was arrested interfering with police investigating a code violation at a restaurant he owned and more.
Still, maybe he’s changed since he knocked the booze on the head and now he’s found inner-peace and is gravitating toward the notoriously brimstone filled world of sexual abuse, political dark-arts and thundering corruption that is known at the Catholic church.
Maybe Rodman should be the new pope? The Pontiff’s robes won’t be the weirdest clothes he’s been seen wearing in public.
