Pope Pope Pope! I wounder if they broke out the little silver hammer this time to see if the old Pope was realy dead. Or if they are going to reinstate the tredition that the Pope has to lead the armys in a time of war. How about this one! I wounder if the new Pope well actualy ask for forgivness for the cursades! Insted of just saying that "it was a bad time in our history", Pope John Paul II. Or maybe he just might consider giving away only 1% to all the starving cathlics around the world. After all, they are the richest entity with the poorest followers. What a system ! I want to be elected president of the world!....I ment Pope.
May I suggest that they use the little, silver hammer every time anyone's not certain the Pope is alive?
Pope Benedict XVI: And as the infallible Pope, I say that all liberation theologists, liberals, and homosexuals should, for the good of their soul, be impaled --
Maxwell: *PONK* *PONK* *PONK* (with twenty-pound hammer)
Pope Benedict XVI: (woozy) What was that for?
Maxwell: Just making sure that you're alive, that's all!
I'm thinking he'll put iron crosses on the popemobile. ;)
no doubt with sinners spiked to them...

Re: and with him being 78
The sooner the better.
Isnt it all just Pope-y! Pope this and Pope that and Pope the other thing. Heh: Its so bloody talked about one can substitute Pope for Smurf...
Did you hear about the Pope that Poped the Pope?
"The question was, who wrote Hamlet. You wrote 'the Pope's cousin, Count Popeula, a magical monster with pencils for arms.'"
was hearing the news in a Jesuit high school and seeing a microwave truck with some bubble headed bleached tv bimbo getting ready to do a standup....
then...there was the chick in the Mesa Borders buying a bunch of books about JPII along with the JP magazine stand RIGHT by the cash register...perfect for that impulse buy....
POPE! Well I dont think this guy will come close to John Pauls legacy. from what Ive heard this new guy might be a little TOO harsh. Ahh, too bad we couldnt get a furry pope.
Or the reptilian space pope. o.o
Do you Pope out at parties? Are you unPope-ular? Try Pope-a-meata-vega-pope!
MMmmmMMM! And it's so PAPAL, too!
Do you really find it surprising that there are people whose religion is important to them? :)
No. I find it surprising that the press continues to report one event, over and over, with no new substantial information.
I see. Apparently I'm not paying enough attention to the media, in order to get the context for this post. :)
I was listening to news radio a bit much that day. After they announce who the Pope is, talk about the local celebration, talk about the ceremony, and talk about his background... they kinda run out of things to say. So they repeat it all.
Could've just been our news stations and me listening at the wrong times but it was a bit too much of a timewarp effect. I mean, I'm sure there was some other news somewhere that day.
So, yeah, this is really a gripe about the media more than anything.
I keep reading his name as John Ratzenberger, and my mind immediately goes the the goofy postal worker he played on Cheers.
Not quite the image one wants of the Pope.
