The Pope Used a Burger King as His Personal Changing Room

He reserved the restaurant three days ahead of time.

Pope Francis stopped by one of Bolivia's finest restaurants — Burger King — yesterday. However, he was not there to indulge in Whoppers and onion rings, but to change into some regal Pope-appropriate garb to lead an open air mass. The Burger King was draped with huge white curtains and was reserved three days ahead of time so that the Pope could dress, "saying prayers" as he donned each item of clothing, in peace.
