Special Delivery of the Day: Man Hands Pope Pizza in Naples

Doing God’s work all day can make a man hungry.

In a recent TV interview in Mexico, Pope Francis said that there was one thing he really didn’t like about his job.

“The only thing I would like is to go out one day, without being recognized, and go to a pizzeria for a pizza,” he said.

This past weekend, his wish was – sort of – granted.

Francis motorcade was making its way through Naples on Sunday, when a man named Enzo Cacialli ran up to him and handed him a pie with the words “Il Papa” written out in dough.

Probably not the best idea in the world to sprint towards the popemobile like a maniac, but no one seemed to mind.

Cacialli is co-owner of Pizzeria Don Ernesto, which also gave a pizza to Bill Clinton in 1994.

Here’s a closr look at the Pope’s pie from the Pizzeria “Don Ernesto” Facebook page which was topped with yellow cherry tomatoes and mozzarella di bufala:

While you’re waiting for your Burger King Whopper cologne to go on sale, why not snack on a tasty KitKat sandwich?

Japan is at it again, with fast food chain First Kitchen offering the sugary treat for a limited time.

And it only costs 220 yen ($1.80)! Which is a steal really, compared to the cost of your future medical and dental bills after gorging yourself on bacon-wrapped pizzas and jelly donut hot dogs.

The sandwich consists of a “KitKat for Cafe” candy bar placed in between two pieces of fluffy bread smothered in whip cream and sprinkled with orange peels for some extra kick.

This week in Springfield, Illinois the forces of evil have emerged victorious.

Mayor J. Michael Houston has awarded G.I. Joe’s nemesis Cobra Commander the key to the city.

“Springfielders near and far, I accept your Mayor’s generous gift,” he said. “And let it be known that I too bring a gift for every man, woman and child of this city that is so near and dear to my heart; an invitation to join with me. Join Cobra!”

It makes a lot of sense, considering Springfield served as a secret base for the villain and his forces in the cartoon.

The stunt is actually a promotion for the upcoming G.I. Joe convention which will be held in the city, which they describe as the “mythical home of COBRA,” from April l9-12.

So now you know, and knowing is half the battle.

Here’s a supercut of Cobra Commander shouting at everyone because that’s just what he does and will continue to do in Illinois now that they’ve welcomed him with open arms.

Via Metro:

A man in Shijiazhuang, Hebei Province, China, decided to pay for his new 51,800 Yuan (£5,552) car using just coins.

According to the salesman, the customer warned him about the currency he intended to use before placing the order, so he can’t really be annoyed.

‘He said he’ll pay in petty cash. I thought it was old and small notes, but never expected they are all in small denomination coins,’ he said.

From the New York Post:

For months doctors searched for a way to awaken Li, but to no avail. It wasn't until his family revealed what he loved most in the world that they found their key to success.

"We had asked his family what really drove him, and they were very clear that it was money," Tang said. "When we learned about his fondness for money, we experimented with notes and change.

"Memories of smell and sound can be very powerful stimulants," he added. "We found that a crisp, new 100 yuan note crumpled under his nose worked best."

Britney Spears' little sister broke up a fight at a Pita Pit in Hammond, LA last month, and thanks to TMZ, you can now watch the whole thing go down.

Her friend was caught in the middle of the scuffle, so she went behind the counter and grabbed a large knife which she then used to threaten the brawlers until they stopped.

The last time a member of the Spears family frantically waved around a deadly weapon was the Great Bald Britney Paparazzi Umbrella Attack of 2007.

Maybe Jamie Lynn has a future in law enforcement if the singing career doesn't work out?
