The Pope’s Mideast Blunder: White out of season!

pope_whitePope Benedict’s trip through the Mideast has been carefully orchestrated to avoid any possible political faux pas, so it was something of a surprise when the Pontiff appeared today in his “summer whites,” amidst a sea of dark suits.

“Clearly The Pope blundered badly here,” Said an angry Palestinian spokesman. “No matter what the temperature is here in the dessert, you simply don’t wear white until after Memorial Day!”

Cardinal Eduardo Santelli, who is traveling with The Pope, said it wasn’t really a mistake, per se.

“His eminence spilled red wine on his dark outfit during some in-flight turbulence, and we had no choice but to go with the whites. Rest assured that Benedict is well aware of fashion conventions and would never intentionally violate those sacrosanct laws.”

The Israelis, meanwhile, claimed it was a Palestinian plot and warned of a “substantial response,” including the possible cancellation of a joint show of “Terror Couture,” which had been planned for later this month in Bethlehem.
