Pope given a BMW X5…

You may not believe it, but BMW have given Pope Benedict a brand new SUV!

Adds: Best joke arising gets a free ticket to the next Leviathan in absolutely! It’s on next Tuesday week – 18th October – with David McWilliams hosting a panel of TDs including John Gormley, Barry Andrews, Arthur Morgan, Kathleen Lynch and others on who should form the next Government (of the “26 counties” that is!).

And: That’s in Dublin BTW. Anyone else want to put up a more flexible prize for those of us who can’t make?
