Only in Italy

The Guardian
But the patrol that pulled over a Ford Fiesta on Friday doing 112mph was surprised to find at the wheel a 56-year-old nun who claimed she needed to be at the pope's side after the pontiff lost his balance in the bathroom and broke his wrist. In the back were two fellow Salesian nuns, aged 65 and 78, who had jumped in the car in Turin when news broke of Pope Benedict's fall near Aosta, where he is spending his summer holiday.
My first reaction to this was "Really? A Fiesta can go 112 mph?"


  1. I guess the selling argument "This car is like new, used to be owned by a nun!" isn't that true anymore..

  2. maybe it's a typo and it meant kph?
