The pope like you’ve never seen him before

New York City firefighters have their calendar, and the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders have theirs, so it’s high time the iPod-packing pontiff had his. Though we kind of doubt Pope Benedict is posing wearing only pants and suspenders like the firefighters, this story promises that, in a new 2007 calendar to be released later this month, he “will appear in 14 different poses.” (Wow! That must mean two bonus poses.) As for this visual, we grabbed it from It’s a bumper sticker that you can buy here.
