The Pope’s Car Share Scheme

by | 6th, June 2007

DOES the Pope Mobile double as a bus? Is global warming so bad that we all have to car share, even the Pontiff? I think not:

VATICAN CITY (AP) – A man tried to jump into Pope Benedict XVI’s uncovered popemobile as the pontiff began his general audience Wednesday in St. Peter’s Square and was wrestled to the ground by security officers.

The pope was not hurt and didn’t even appear to notice that the man had jumped over the protective barricade in the square and toward the white popemobile as it drove by with the pope waving to the audience.

At least eight security officers who were trailing the popemobile grabbed the man and wrestled him to the ground. The pope didn’t even look back.
