What Was Pope Francis Doing at Burger King?

Hearing the name Pope Francis in the same sentence as Burger King is bound to raise some eyebrows.

The pontiff was in Bolivia this week and went into a Burger King to change his vestments before leading Mass.

The restaurant was closed and had been booked in advance by the pope’s camp (yes, the pope has a camp).

Burger King’s manager said the pope’s handlers “asked for help because this was an appropriate place and we had closed.”

There’s no word on whether the pontiff tried to get a Whopper or fries. For his sake, we hope he didn’t. It’d be too dicey to risk getting grease and ketchup on all that white he wears.
