One of the little things I love about Pope Francis - in addition to continuing his patronage with his cobbler in Argentina and continuing with his same black shoes - is that he has made me remember mate tea.
I used to drink mate quite a bit. Then I stopped. I don't know why I stopped. I really like mate.
I think he looks cool in this photo from when before he was Pope:
I mean, how many people could make drinking from a mate gourd in the street look cool?
Anyways, I was thinking about Zed swag, and I realized that Fr. Zed could make a killing selling mate gourds with something printed on them for this new pontificate.
And so I got to thinking...
I know Enbrethiliel would order one.
I know Terry would order one.
I would order like a dozen.

FYI: Fr. Zed could walk you to several cobblers - in Italy no less!
