With the retirement of Pope Benedict XVI all but certain, savvy internet users have alerted the Free Wood Post to a recent posting found on vatican.craigslist.org which is believed to refer to the most recent Popemobile.
The ad reads:
Practically new Custom Mercedes
Based on midsize M-Class SUV
Bullet proof cabin with no blind spots
Self-contained oxygen supply
3 feet of headroom
White leather seat with gold trim (no really – gold trim)
Armored side panels and undercarriage, Explosive countermeasures
Very low miles, never exceeded 6mph
Perfect for head of large church or rich, paranoid doomsday prepper
Divorce forces sale
Comes with free pair of red loafers
Scandalously low price
The Vatican denies that the posting is for the actual Pope’s vehicle. They also want everyone to stop calling it the “Popemobile”.
