Uh Oh! It Looks Like Someone in the Vatican Has a Cocaine Problem

This January, German authorities intercepted a shipment of cocaine-stuffed condoms addressed to the holiest city on Earth (suck it, Mecca!), the Vatican. From the New York Post:

Officers at Leipzig airport found 340 grams (12 ounces) of the drug packed into 14 condoms inside a shipment of cushions coming from South America.

The paper says the package was simply addressed to the Vatican postal office, meaning any of the Catholic mini-state’s 800 residents could have picked it up.

Well… yea. When you (theoretically) ship weed back from San Francisco, you never put your name on the envelope.

The question now is who wanted the 340 grams? (Aside from me.) (Seriously, that would tide me over for a few years.) The easy money is on Pope Francis. He’s been more jovial than any of his predecessors and this explains why.

I guess that’s what he thinks Jesus meant when he said “Upon this Rock.”
