things that make you go hmmmmmmm

Pope Razinger is a "former" Nazi.

His favorite drink is Fanta Orange.

Fanta is a brand of fruit-flavored soft drink from the Coca-Cola Company, introduced for the first time in Germany in 1940.

Fanta was devised during World War II in Nazi Germany by the German Coca Cola (GmbH) bottling company. Due to restrictions on shipping between Nazi Germany and the United States during hostilities, the German bottling plant could no longer get Coca Cola syrup. The CEO of the plant, Max Keith, needed to do something to keep the plant in operation and came up with a fruit flavored drink made from whatever he could find. Using apple fiber left over from cider presses and whey, a byproduct from cheese manufacture, Fanta was created and became quite popular.

Wow. Now there's a quality product with a colorful background. Yumbo. America got "Coca-Cola" the Nazi's got "Fanta Orange" and the Coke company profitted by both.

And the Pope... still likes his Fanta.

When one person believes in an invisible, supernatural person we call it insanity.
