All in a day's work.
|Shop Early for Christmas! says Father Toni F of Vienna|
In Vienna he is known as the 'Vicar of Adabei' and he is often featured rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous in the celebrity pages of Austria's most popular daily. In my cartoon he is shown giving his blessing to a newly opened lingerie shop in the city.
'Adabei' means basically 'we were there'.
There's a regular clique who like to be to the fore; troops of politicians, actors and artists can be seen straining their necks and champagne flutes while praying to get into the publicity photos, on an almost daily basis.
I don't know if 'Adabeiers' are seen regularly in Father Toni's church, which is the city's cathedral.
But that's another story.
