boB The Bruce

boB the Bruce

 

Long lost relative of Scottish King, boB the Bruce …ooops Robert the Bruce….boB has always been a sort of poor man’s Templar Knight.

 

When he heard that Pope Benedict was retiring he jumped into action …

 

So boB is on a Quest. No Templar cup for him, it is all pontifical cast-me-a-ways... Whatever the old Pope had to give up to retire, our boB is more than willing to recycle and reuse. The Pope’s Fisherman's ring will be obliterated by a silver hammer, so boB has crafted his own version. The Washer Woman ring is made of Ivory soap which is known to be 99.99 percent pure and boB’s version adds 1% LYE to make the piece whole-LYE... (Get it? Holy<g>)

 

Now boB knows he could wear white, but that really isn't his colour. Instead. he'll go with a little green, orange and purple madras long shirt (couldn't find a cassock in those colours – surprise, surprise <g>) ...

 

But never fear, since boB scrounged through the Vatican garbage cans and discovered the Pope's old red shoes he can now wear those and leave the hand-cobbled brown loafers to the retiree…

 

boB also thought briefly about trying to take over the Pope's Twitter account. Considering it had over 3 million followers and the Pope had only 'tweeted' 38 times to keep them all happy, boB figured even he could manage that one ...a ‘shoe-in of sorts … LOL

 

But alas, it wasn't really retired, just on sabbatical until a new Pope is chosen...

 

Poor boB, foiled again!
