pope bird

Hey, Pope Francis. Whatcha doing?

“I’m-a da magician now! Look-a da bird I made!”

You didn’t make that bird.

“No, no. God, he made-a da bird. But I-a made it appear out-a da nowhere. All-a da people, they went ‘OOH’ and-a ‘AHH.’ They was-a very impressed.”

You’re serious?

“Si. I’ve-a been into magic since-a I was a little Pope.”

I did not know this.

“Oh, sure. What’s-a this behind-a you ear?”

A QUARTER!

“That’s-a da magic. You keep-a da quarter. You’re a good-a kid.”
