Sol, I think Ratzi himself was a former court jester. And not a very good one either. But Swaggart has him beat - he had prostitutes perform for him. Maybe Ratzi would be better off doing that - but hiring only Catholic prostitutes, of course. Prostitutes of the one, true religion.

How does anyone know whether or not the Pope knew that those guys wouldd be shirtless or not?
