Roll Out the Barrel --
Via, Bavaria is ready to greet its native son:
'Pope Benedict pastries' — sweet cakes with a cross in the middle — fill bakery windows in the small town of Marktl, the birthplace of Pope Benedict XVI, in anticipation of his arrival in the Catholic-dominated Bavarian heartland on Saturday.

Across town, crates of 'Benedict Beer' are being brought in for the expected influx of tourists. And souvenir stores have been stocking up on pope memorabilia."
