Top 10 Things the Pope Said When He Got a Surprise Pizza Delivery

"Shouldn't have filled up on communion wafers."

Last night on the Late Show, host David Letterman discussed the bold and determined restaurateur who jumped a barricade to hand Pope Francis a special papal pizza this weekend in Naples, Italy. Letterman contemplates what might have been said at the moment of the pizza exchange and offers up a classic top ten list. Potential phrases include "Mama Mia! That's a spicy lapse of security," and "Shouldn't have filled up on communion wafers." Or perhaps the Pope said, "I gave up on food from strangers for Lent." Maybe he went the punny route and proclaimed, "Pizza be with you!" Go, watch to find out what was number one.
