BATTLESHIP NEW JERSEY TO PROVIDE CHEAP ACCOMMODATIONS DURING POPE FRANCIS’ VISIT TO PHILADELPHIA

imageCAMDEN, New Jersey (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – Pope Francis will visit the city of Philadelphia on September 26 and 27 as part of his U.S. itinerary.  If you plan to go see the Pope and have not made your hotel reservations yet, you’re out of luck.  Hotel and other accommodations are 100% booked.

But wait, there is some hope.

The Battleship New Jersey , America’s most decorated battleship, has some bunks available for pilgrims who need a place to lay their head during the papal visit to Philadelphia.

Battleship New Jersey, now a museum, is  located in Camden and is just literally a stone’s throw away from Philadelphia.

“Guests can come on board, be served dinner and breakfast from the chow line, get a tour of the battleship, ride the flight simulator and, of course, sleep in the bunks used by the former crew of USS New Jersey — all for the bargain price of $69.99 per day,” said Jack Williard, senior vice president fo the Battleship New Jersey Museum and Memorial .

There must be a catch, right?

Yes, but just one minor catch:  showers are not provided.

So go ahead and book your bunk.  It’s first come, first served.

And pack enough deodorant and cologne, as a courtesy to the thousands of other pilgrims who will be part of the packed crowds you’ll be intimately hobnobbing with  at the papal event.

IT MAY BE RAINING SPIDERS IN AUSTRALIA, BUT IT’S RAINING FECES IN PENNSYLVANIA

LEVITTOWN, Pennsylvania (The Adobo Chronicles) – Earlier this week, The Adobo Chronicles reported that it was raining spiders in Goulburn, Australia. It seems the Aussies had it much better than residents of Pennsylvania, U.S.A.

A Levittown family says their daughter’s Sweet 16 birthday party was ruined when a passing airplane dropped human waste on the celebration Sunday evening.

Joe Cambray, the birthday girl’s stepfather, said he was playing some horseshoes in the backyard when out of nowhere, something nasty rained down on the gathering, according to Fox 29 Philadelphia. Thankfully, a canopy erected for the party shielded most of the guests.

“Out of nowhere from the sky comes a bunch of feces, lands hard on the canopy,” Cambray told the station.

“We’d just gotten done with the cake, thank God,” Cambray’s sister, Kristie Rogy, said. “Because within two minutes something fell from the sky. It was brown. It was everywhere. It got on everything… It was gross!”

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is now investigating the incident and is ready to file charges against the aircraft responsible for being a party pooper.
