Papal-Mania is sweeping the nation and swamping the city! We’re drowning in a tsunami of draconian security measures, 24 hour hype from the news media, and an insane amount of keepsakes. We’ve seen t-shirts, buttons, flags, bows, a stuffed Francis, a waving Francis, and cross shaped soft pretzels.
The best of the bunch came from the folks at Pastificio Deli – a mozzarella shaped Pope! They commissioned a local artist to sculpt a bust of the Pope and had molds made – genius! (Click on the photos to enlarge.)
Here’s hoping that the Pontiff enjoys His stay in our fair city; accomplishes His mission, grabs a cheesesteak, and moves on to the next stop of his tour!
