Pope Drops F-Bomb

Pope Francis mispronounced a word during a public address Sunday, turning it into the Italian F-bomb, much to the delight of Italians and journalists. He immediately corrected himself and went on. Good for him.

The Bear can remember a non-accidental usage of the word from his radio days in front of a microphone that he believed was off. Well, it wouldn't be much of a story if it really were off, would it? It was a tense several minutes waiting for the phone to start ringing, but it never did (probably because no one was listening). Okay, so it wasn't much of a story, anyway.

Getting back to the Bishop of Rome, he seems to have more than his share of problems with microphones. The Bear commends him to St. Clare of Assisi, who was not only close to St. Francis, but is the patron saint of television. When illness prevented her from assisting at Mass, she was able to see it on the wall next to her bed.

  1. Perhaps this was a way for a Higher Power to chasten His Holiness about being in front of a microphone...
