The Pope Sez To Drive Carefully!

Pope Benedict XVI, the former Cardinal Ratzinger, has issued his Ten Commandments for Drivers, with such gems of wisdom as the first one: "You shall not kill". Motorists are warned against allowing their vehicles to become ''occasions of sin'' by such acts as driving recklessly or using them as havens for prostitution. Whaaa?

Road rage, according to the ''Guidelines for the Pastoral Care of the Road'' can lead to ''impoliteness, rude gestures, cursing, blasphemy, loss of sense of responsibility or deliberate infringement of the highway code.'' So chill out and drive like a good sheep....I mean, a good member of the flock.

And here's the t-shirt (also available on mugs, mousepads, magnets, little round ceramic ornaments that would be great for hanging from the rear view mirror, and useful little posters)!
