The Pope (sort of) comes for a visit

My sister and I were wandering through the grocery store when we stumbled across the cardboard cutout of some chef dude. (It scared the living daylights out of me because I was sure he was a real person.)

That brought back the lovely memories of my time in my Catholic high school, when we had a cardboard cutout of the Pope lying around the school. He was in the library first, and I seem to recall people freaking out whenever they came in because AAAHHH WHY IS THE POPE IN THE LIBRARY???!?!?!!!?

After that it became kind of a running joke to see where the cutout could be put to scare people the most. He's been on a balcony, looking over us as we went about our lives, in the office, staring as we handed in our permission notes and finally in the bathroom for Muck Up Day (when the grade 12s play pranks on everyone else on their final day of school). That bathroom one was just mean. 

Yeah. So basically we had a cutout Pope at our school. 

Have you ever had something really weird happen at your school?

  1. We have a cutout of the Pope at my school because we are like, an actually Catholic school, so it isn't really weird. If I think of something really weird at my school, though... I don't know! Sometimes things seem weird, but then they happen again and just fade into the normalcy of college life.

    1. That's funny that you've just accepted it as being normal. I still get freaked out when I think about it. We even had the vice principal posing for a selfie with him. *shudders* I think that's like a lot of life, though. Weird things become normal over time, which is alright. Thanks for commenting, Heather!

  2. Hahahahaha, that's too funny. If only I had an obnoxiously large cutout of the pope to use for my nefarious pranking purposes, haha.

    Thanks for making me laugh.

    1. Sunny, if you ever wonder what you're going to do for April Fool's Day, look no further than a life-sized cutout of the Pope. It's the best thing in the entire world :D
