Pope for Sale

Posted on Mar 3, 2010 | 6 comments

I apologize for the very late entry into March, but I was out of the country for work and arrived back, full of jet lag, yesterday. I took this shot just before I left and really, it’s something so easy to take outside of any small shop selling tourist items. It never ceases to make me giggle that in Rome, the Pope’s image is hawked right next to cheap little bags with “Ciao Bella” written on them. Someday I’ll get a shot of the Pope lollipops….


  1. He's been reduced to just another tourist attraction!

  2. Well done, Jessica, really good photo and interesting antropological detail!

  3. We're going to be in Rome this upcoming week. Can't wait to get good cheesy Pope stuff for friends. The Pope Pops are perfect! Do they have Pope bobbleheads? đŸ˜‰

  4. too funny….i'm hoping to visit rome in june..i'll have to keep an eye out for the lollipops!!! hahaha

  5. Crystallyn – Non bobbleheads that I've seen! Though I saw a gladiator once.

    Ben – They're easy to spot around the Vatican.

  6. Haha, i got such a kick out of the "pope for sale" stuff. I was really expecting to see a Jesus shot glass amongst the mix!
