He has no lips. He must be Polish

I think it was Wednesday, last week, an early morning in Shanghai. WXQ was watching TV (CNN news) without any sound. I was waking up on my bed, but still trying to catch the last rays of sleep. When she said “they elected another Pope from Poland,” I could not resist waking up. “Why do you say he’s from Poland?” “He has no lips, just like you. He even looks like older you.” At that point, I knew that Joseph A Ratzinger (actually from Germany) was elected as the new Pope. I was glad to see a German cardinal to get this extremely important position.
