b/c he wrote about happiness, in such an awkward way. everyone thinks that pope was a sad, strange man who cant ever get off. but what he really was, is a rich loving character who got off at least 12 times a day. he did like men, thats kind of weird, but besides that he is just a normal crooked guy. peace
