Why Is The Pope Snubbing Boston? (acc. to The Onion, and me)
If you've been under a rock: this is referring to the Pope's upcoming visit to the USA in the Spring.
Other IC possibilities (apparently these options registered, total, under 1%):
--Feels he knows the neighborhood well enough from Cheers episodes. Besides, everybody knows his name already.
--Closet Yankees fan...shhh....
--Doesn't want to run in to Teddy Kennedy or John Kerry. Awkward.
--Knows from experience that Irish-based food is utterly tasteless.
--Kindly anticipated that throngs would still be recovering from St. Paddy's Day celebrations.
--Clam chowder isn't a comfort food in Bavaria: the salty, rubbery appeal simply isn't there.
--Trying to get more bang for the buck on this trip by more time in our Cherry Blossom-laden capital.
--That will teach the Archdiocese for ______________.
