Good point, Tristan.
He's certainly helping to lock in those Polish stereotypes, isn't he?
We could gainfully add in "glutton for punishment" as well.

P. S. I'm still very proud of my Polish Ancestors. Fortunately this
chap is not one of them. Anyone who calls himself "Mr. Sandmich" must
have an elevator that doesn't stop on all floors. Yes, Monsignor
Grabowsky that one was for you and the Holy Father.
P.P.S. Some well-informed Roman Catholic/s please help me. A
Cardinal is addressed as "Your Eminence" --- I heard Cokie Roberts say
it the other day.
The head of the Jesuit Order is "General" --- as I recall.
Corrections are Most Welcome.
