Pope Francis a Former Bouncer

By  | 

ROME (AP) -- If St. Peter ever needs help at the pearly gates, Pope Francis may be the perfect man for the job. It turns out the popular pontiff was once a bouncer at a nightclub in his native Argentina.

Francis shared that interesting tidbit to catholics at a church outside of Rome earlier this week. He also said his career has included sweeping floors and running tests in a chemical lab.

These revelations are sure to boost his image as a "Pope of the people."

There's no word from the Vatican on whether Francis ever had to get physical with unruly bar patrons.
