Soon after Pope Francis was duly elected, a press release emerged from environmentally-friendly insurance firmETA. It claimed the new Pope was about to take delivery of a pedal-powered Popemobile costing £175,000.
The new, eco-friendly Popemobile was fully loaded with solar panels, low-voltage spotlights – “to illuminate His Holiness” – and the capability of hitting a top speed of 6 mph.
Plans call for the Pope to give the vehicle his final…uh…blessing today, on Monday, April 1, 2013.
