Pope’s 2008 Tour Spikes eBay Sales, Fails to Defeat Satan

HELL OF A SALE Dark lord, Pope Benedict XVI (inset)

People hawking Pope Benedict XVI T-shirts, bobbleheads, domain names, and images on seashells are thanking God (or whomever) for his U.S. visit. For the last two weeks, sales of Pope-related items has spiked 124 percent, according to eBay. There’s currently 213 PB16 items for sale. Keep it tight, B, and you could hit John Paul II numbers—773 items relating to him are currently for sale. Sadly, neither pontiff comes close to the 802 items for sale that come up when you search for Satan. [Insider]
