In remember of dead our Big Pope



While walking through the streets of Barcelona for our anniversary weekend get-away, Marci and I ran across a shop window full of Catholic collectibles. While we admired the obvious display of piety, we had to laugh at their attempts to create a special English-language collectible "In remember of dead our Big Pope."

Another good example of cashing in on Christ, no matter what the translation. Tiresome stuff.

What I wonder is how many people actually bought such a collectible item for reasons other than comedic effect? How many Spanish homes are proudly displaying their English epitaph to John Paul II without any clue of it's subtle linguistic errors? It's funny to think about...

I discovered exactly the same book in Berlin-Neuk├Âlln yesterday and googled the title in order to see whether anybody else has noticed it. Great stuff!
