A mere three days after the discovery of the popenipperain (which, incidentally, I am renaming the popenippering as it has a better, well, ring, to it. Matt gets credit for the new name), I resumed the original quest for a popener and found success in Caminito, a tourist trap that was surprisingly entertaining. I will post about Caminito another time, but here are the pictures of the new popeners. These have handy magnets on the back and while they are not the identical style as the original popeners, I thought my quest was complete.
Does Pope Francis have his own beer company? I’m now torn between continuing to search for every style of popener, popenippering and the like or calling it quits. I should call it quits, but I might just have to keep my eyes open for another treasure.

It just keeps getting better and better. Don’t give up yet! Just think of what might still be out there! Pope flashlight, pope compass, pope pen (preferably an action pen!), pope spatula. There’s no limit…
Oh you are correct – there is no limit to pope paraphernalia. In addition to the previously mentioned keychains, lighters, and matches, we have seen pope beer mugs, coasters, pens and bombillas – which are the metal straws one uses to drink an herbal infusion called yerba mate (mate also referring to the cup it is drunk from). I have no doubt I could fill a suitcase with Popenirs, but a quest must have focus!
True, true. Focus is good. Best wishes on your continued quest for more popeners! 🙂 (Very nice new word, by the way–Popenirs. Well done! I’ll have to share that with my dad. You know how he likes interesting words–and making up words!)
I agree with Maria—I think you need to see how many more are out there. And like Maria, I of course would like an addition to my collection 🙂
One already has your name on it!
I do not want to wait until Christmas. Send them North please!
Must…keep…going! Too awesome to stop. Now that more places in the States have legalized marijuana, you could have a whole new market of items to sell here when you come back. =)
Not the comment I expected from an HR professional! :=)
