Church Suspends Casual Sundays After Several Pope-Related Complaints
The decision to drop the informal initiative was made after several complaints were logged upon Pope Francis's arrival this past Sunday at the enclave dressed in a relaxed Hawaiian shirt with black socks, sandals and a Timex watch.
"I sought the Pope's council on a matter of great urgency," said Cardinal Ruberto Muntini. "But when I was admitted to his quarters and saw those old worn dress socks and pasty-white gams, I completely forgot that which had been troubling me."
The casual dress code was initially intended to encourage Cardinals and Bishops to begin promoting a new line of Christian golf and leisure-wear, along with a newly-minted Papal sweat-suit. Those ideas will now be put on hold.
"I just found his attire to be quite distracting," continued Muntini.
"I know he doesn't have a wife, but by God there must be someone at home who can take a look at him before he leaves the house looking like that."
