  1. When you are are a nun you’re a nun…
    You’re a nun all the way.
    From your first taste of wine to your last roll in the hay!

  2. “Arias pleaded guilty to wearing a nun’s habit to rob a bank in Passaic, N.J….” So, was wearing the nun’s habit an element of the charge? I realize that wearing a military uniform, a police officer’s uniform, and even a postal worker’s uniform without legal authorization are all crimes, but I would be surprised about the nun’s uniform. Or maybe I’m reading this too literally. 😉
