Pope Francis a bouncer at a nightclub?

Pope Francis was once a bouncer at a bar in his native Argentina.

Francis told Catholics at a church outside Rome earlier this week that he has worked at a nightclub, swept floors and ran tests in a chemical lab. Already known as a "Pope of the people," Francis' jobs are sure to continue that image.

The Vatican has not said if Francis ever had to get physical with unruly bar patrons.
