Spectacle in St Peter's Basilica


Isn't this a gorgeous and awe-inspiring sight! Just imagine how impressed Jesus of Nazareth would have been!

He'd probably look down at his manicured feet in their red leather Birkenstocks, and say to himself: "You've come a long way from the stable, JC baby!"

Begone, you swine! I'll hear no more of your blasphemous utterances!

Well, that told him, didn't it? Is he by any chance a person of North American extraction? What in the name of Doc Martens is a Birkenstock?

I am Canadian, of Dutch and English extraction.

A Birkenstok is a kind of leather sandle made in Germany, and mostly worn by granola eating vegans, latter day hippies, new agers and a certain breed of hip, young, green, activist students ...you know, the kind who sell papal robes of eBay etc.

Dutch/English, eh? Well, that's your hard luck, son.
Yes, I know what Birkenstoks are, but what are these Birkenstocks you refer to?

Joel said...

Oh, I see ...mea culpa! *grovelling with embarassment*

I spelled it correctly in my second post; does that make atone enough for the first?
