How come people always say “Does a bear **** in the woods?” or they ask “Is the Pope Catholic?”?
What does being pope have to do with pooping in the woods? I dont get the connotation?

Those two expressions are another way of saying “Yes” to a really stupid question, one where the answer is obvious. The Pope is obviously Catholic and a bear obviously s***s in the woods, just like the answer to the question is obvious.
The two expressions are not supposed to be used together but sometimes people get them mixed up because they mean the same thing.
