Pope Bling Bling

Addendum to our earlier post: “You are what you wear”, Observers are saying that there are signs that the new Pope, Joseph Ratzinger may be more progressive than his record would suggest. These signs or indications or what have you, aren’t based on insider information but on what designer accessory the Pope is sporting:

- Pricey Serengeti sunglasses (the brand Val Kilmer wears)
- Pope’s reading glasses are Cartier’s Santos
- A stylish retro wristwatch with black hands, dial and straps (No word on what brand but our little elves are working on it)
- and a pair Black and gold cufflinks.

All this apparently outweighs his record as a Cardinal. Go figure.
