Pope Francis appears to like the night life. He recently revealed that before he was the pope, he worked as a bouncer at a nightclub. And, now there's a rumor that the spiritual leader is sneaking out of the Vatican at night in ministerial garb to preach to the homeless. As one comedian put it, is there another guy on the planet as cool as this one?
Wait! A pope who once hung out at nightclubs? A spiritual leader who now escapes the confines of a huge mansion at night disguised as a vigilante vicar? There's only one explanation. Pope Francis, according to another comedian, must be the religious equivalent of the alter ego Batman. He is (KAPOW! SLAM!) the Batpope. Take a look at today's Punchlines to see what other evidence is used to back up this theory.
