Satiric radio commentary for the 90s from the man who drained Lake Michigan and filled it with hot chocolate!!!

The Vatican Dress Code

Stan Freberg here. Thinking of visiting St. Peter's at the Vatican in your Bermuda shorts? Forget it! They have a dress code there that dates back 400 years. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

The Wall Street Journal ran a story headlined "At St.Peter's you may bare your soul, but not much skin." Not only are mini-skirts out, forget bare shoulders. They have guards at St. Peter's nicknamed "God's Bouncers" to firmly explain the rules.

One man had to take off his sports shirt and lay under a tree outside, bare chested, while his wife covered her strapless sun dress with his shirt.

The guards say American and British youths are the most understanding, while the French and Italians get huffy; but the worst, they say, are the Poles. "They think just because the Pope is Polish, they can go into St. Peter's in tank tops." They are firmly turned away by God's Bouncers.

Since these commentaries are heard in the Vatican, if I show up sometime, how 'bout if I wear my tux?
