One more pope comment, and then I'm done
My mom (like many others) used to answer my very obvious questions with, "Is the Pope Catholic?" It wasn't until I was in college or so that I actually found out the answer to that question. Seriously, religion of any sort was just not part of my life, and I didn't know what a Catholic was or who the Pope was. I'd just laugh along with my mom and secretly wonder, "So.... was that a yes or a no?"
Around our house, we're more likely to use the expression, "Does the Pope poop* in the woods?" Because, of course, that's an obvious yes. When ya gotta go, ya gotta go.
*Even I, heathen that I am, am reluctant to use Pope and shit in the same sentence. I consider this a sign of my own spiritual growth.
