Mr. Billion's explanation wins!

I think Pope Francis is a great deal more likeable than his predecessor which leads people to make up stories like this one.

Even as an ex-Catholic who is never looking back, I am somewhat charmed by Francis versus being mostly disgusted by Benedict right from the start (don't worry I'm sure Francis will do something awful like uphold a ban on condoms in AIDS stricken countries soon and I'll lose my benevolence).

I also doubt the Pope would be so ignorant as to the purpose of the Swiss Guard as to force them to sit and eat a jelly sandwich.
