    off to the sporting supply store to purchase iguana catching/killing equipment.

    since the o's are not hunters (or gatherers) they relied on the pope's hunting expertise.

    the pope chose 3 lovely bows and bought a bunch of arrows too.

    form there they hailed bully to take them to the wild side and there they began....

    As the case may be, experienced Iguana hunters must first try the catch, if they catch nothing you must bless the nets and sit back. Within minutes their nets were full. The iguanas will be sorted by color and size. The Pope was to choose which part of the iguana he would like served. As he viewed the catch , he decided that there were to many young green ones so he set them free. As the people exclaimed," You must eat Pope" he said," I have changed my mind, my taste for them has changed, I can't eat those beautiful creatures. I will eat a burger at Hard Rock". The Pope climber aboard the Kokukonuku bus and headed to the Hard Rock. After ordering 3 burgers well done he asked for baskets to fill and feed the gathering crowd. All of a sudden the baskets filled with burgers ......

    and the Pope also had Balashis sent out to the crowd that was gathered at the Hard Rock!

    He stood there looking at the many choices and decided to pick the local Aruba brand.
    Back into the Pope mobile they went and the next stop was the Marriott Casino.
    The Pope stood at the craps table with the big cigar in his mouth and shot the dice....

    He couldn't stop rolling heavenly 7's on his first rolls. After 2 hours of winning, the casino host came to offer him a stay at the best room in the Tradewinds tower. The Pope declined the room, cashed in his winnings and had them make out checks to ARF and the orphanage to spread his winnings around.

    From the casino, the Pope and the O's went on to...

    ... puppies! Lots of puppies! And dogs! And kittens, and cats! Pope Francis was very touched, especially, as the puppies come playfully running up to him and started to kiss his face enthusiastically! Some people on the beach were shocked. But the Pope assured them, it was fine as he sat down in the sand and let the dogs and puppies jump all over him and snuggling up with him. He started to giggle and felt a happiness in his heart, he had not felt since he was a little boy. Those dogs, cats, puppies and kitten were perfect, they had a pure heart and gave unconditional love. The Pope remembered why he chose the name "Francis". It was in honor of of "Francis of Assisi", who loved and protected ALL creatures. Pope Frances wanted to see the other animals on the island as well, the Donkey sanctuary and the Ostrich Farm, Rodger's Garden and the Butterfly Farm. But as night was approaching fast, he just stayed on the beach to witness once again a magnificent sunset. The kind people of MooMba brought the Pope some food. He asked for some plates so that he could share his meal with the joyful menagerie which still surrounded him. He blessed the food with the words: "We all have a duty to do good. And this commandment for everyone to do good, I think, is a beautiful path towards peace." Then, everyone settled down in the sand to await the upcoming "Blood Moon" and the lunar eclipse.
