Dine with the Pope

I got this amusing email today that invited me to (and the quote really is the quote): "Be among the first to dine with the new Pontiff, Pope Benedict XVI..."  That just made me laugh.  It was sent by Buca di Beppo, one of my favorite places to eat.  They have good food, great atmosphere, and it's Italian eating, family style, where each dish is meant to serve at leat 3-4 people (unless of course, one of those people is my wife).  At each of the restaurant chains, there is a "Pope room," where the Pope's head is encased in a plastic cube on a very large lazy susan.  It never really occurred that this would be something that would have to be changed once the Pope changed, but alas, I have now been invited to dine with the new Pontiff, "now gracing all Pope's tables."  Hee hee.  I find this funny.
