@Jorge: salvation army is christan organization! Donating to them = donating to church = donating to the wealthiest organization in the world. Would you donate your money to Bill Gates or Warren Buffet?

Fine, NaziSupremePedoMobile, this will make everybody happy

All while this dude shits on his holy shitter eating from gold plates and getting his ass kissed by equally ignorant people.
Jorge Gonzalez Jan 22, 2013
I would never donate squat to this dude or his conglomerate of holy pricks. I rather donate to the salvation army or better yet to all the hungry people in Africa who pray they'll survive on more day.
Brayden Krause Jan 22, 2013
I think they need to work on the whole bulletproof factor for this one.
Thomas William Tuer-sipos Jan 21, 2013
You both are idiots, first off that gold stuff? It's not his actually, it's lineage it's far older than your POS family lineage ever will be, and no the pope shouldn't have to completely trust the lord to save him from an idiot with a gun
Tracy Keiser Dron Jan 21, 2013
The pope is a joke!!!! If you're a Gods man, wouldn't God watch over you? Why bulletproof limos and body guards??? Poor lost man, you trully need God!!!

@ Jordan. And please do some research yourself. This was the vehicle used by Pope John Paul II when he was shot. Not Benedict. Also, how can you call the Pope a Nazi?! I hope God has mercy in your soul. You'll need it.

@Jordan, I thought about what I would say to you, and there are literally no words to encompass your incompetence. You sir are 1.) the person who posted the single most insane comment I have ever seen on the Internet, and 2.) are insane.
Ethan Amo Jan 21, 2013
Are you serious Jordan? We're in the freaking 21st century and you somehow think that they still provide nazi cars? C'mon, stop being a dick and grow up
Shane Carroll Jan 21, 2013
@Jordan perhaps remove the tin foil hat from your head before commenting
Jordan Neal Jan 21, 2013
Ah mercedes, provider to the head o the nazi party, provider to a nazi at the head of the church. Before you comment abuse, do some research, you'll see im right

Luis Daniel Angilello Jan 22, 2013
Of course you wouldn't want the Pope to touch a filthy powder-coated galvanized tube, wouldn't you?
Jimmy Case Jan 21, 2013
Yes and tax deductible.

The mental image of the Pope riding atop a fire truck is far more amusing than it should be.

He should have a converted Marauder.
Shane Carroll Jan 21, 2013
Personally I think he should be driving around in Robosaurus but that's just me
Jorge Gonzalez Jan 21, 2013
How about a garbage truck with mechanical arm to scoop the pope up and place him in the back. We can add wallpaper and a nice office chair for his throne.
Will Will Jan 21, 2013

If I remember correctly, papal vehicles are donated to the Vatican so the price is a bit of a moot point.

He's talking to the CEO of Damler-Mercedez. I remember his commercials for the then Damler-Chrysler corp..... Until they sold off their share to fiat....... Good riddens.... Mercedez put some crappy smog components in some of the Chrysler vehicles. Hated having to deal with pissed customers when they found out how much the failed component was going to cost as it was a Mercedes sourced part.....
