DAMN - spent all weekend fruitlessly looking for my copy of David Peel & The Lower East Side's 1972 classic "The Pope Smokes Dope." Instead, we'll honor the passing of the Pontiff with a lovely 1983 number from a band at least as drug-addled and wacked-out as Mr Peel & Co., Texas' legendary Butthole Surfers:

"Bar-B-Q Pope" Sing along!
"I wet my pants last night
I woke up so happy
They shot the Pope!
They shot the Pope's ass!"

Rest in peace, Your Holiness...
