Congrats Benedict XVI - Pope 'em Up Good!


I'm glad that the Cardinals were able to choose a new Pope so quickly. I'm not really sure why, but I felt slightly disconcerted that there was no Pope for the last few weeks. Now that we have a Pope again, I feel much better. That may not make sense, seeing as how I'm Jewish and all, but it seems like such a waste to have no one to wear that snazzy outfit. I mean, look at that thing: the robe, the hood, the scarf. You can tell that some serious craftsmanship went into the production. To think that no one would be wearing it, well, that's like me dying and no one wearing my Phat Farm velor sweatsuit. It's just a waste. Seriously though, congratulations to all you Catholics who once again have a direct conduit to the Almighty. Let's just be glad that said conduit wasn't elected until 60 years after WWII. Had Hitler known he had the future Pope on his side in the 40's, things could have turned out a lot worse....

Don't you think the catholics rushed into this a little quickly? I mean, they just got out of this serious relationship with this guy John Paul. The last thing someone wants is a pity pope.

am i the only one who thinks this guy has a very strange look on his face? i can't quite figure out what the deal is. i think it's most likey either the expression of a man who's almost 80 and has never had sex, or the face of a man who has fooled us all and is about to unleash a diabolical plan for world domination.
