VATICAN CITY, Italy - Pope Francis met with Italian President Pasquale Pasta in the Bingo Convention Center at the Vatican.
The two talked about wine, women, work, and the recent Fettuccine Alfredo Scandal that has rocked Italy to its very core.
Pope Francis informed President Pasta that when he first heard about the scandal he figured that it was some kind of hoax that had been perpetrated by some disgruntled Italian pastry chef with too much free time on his hands.
But he soon learned from Vatican City private investigators the truth behind the most unfortunate incident.
After their meeting the Pope mentioned to President Pasta if he had watched the news on CNN. He replied that he had.
The pope then said that he has a real bad feeling about all of the earthquakes that are rocking California.
He took a sip from his wine glass and said that he sees those tremors as a warning to the fine residents of California to, as they used to say in TV westerns, get the hell out of Dodge.
SIDENOTE: President Pasta totally agreed with the pope and noted that he has a cousin and an aunt who live two blocks from the infamous San Andreas Fault.
