While speaking to a crowd congregated underneath his window at the Vatican Sunday, Pope Francis accidentally said the word “fuck.” He was speaking Italian and the word (“cazzo”) is very similar to the word the Pope was trying to say, “caso,” (meaning “example”) but still HEY, WASH THIS GUY’S MOUTH OUT WITH SOAP.

Here’s the full text of the comment, showing where Francis quickly corrected his mistake:

“If each one of us does not amass riches only for oneself, but half for the service of others, in this fuck [pause], in this case the providence of God will become visible through this gesture of solidarity,” he said.

The Pope is from Argentina, of course, and he proved yesterday that even the most infallible among us can screw up a second language.
