I'm really hoping it'll be an old man!! I mean that would be SOOOO TOTALLY OUT OF THE ORDINARY!!!!!!
11
Wonder why it's taking so long to announce him.

I'm hoping it involves wacky hijinks.
12
I wonder why @11's number thing doesn't show in the upper right hand corner of his post.
13
After two named John-Paul, I'm hoping for a George-Ringo

Oh shit -- now it's there. I feel so stupid.

I was listening to 'Talk of the Nation' when they interrupted with this dumb news. Ken Rudin had said he heard a rumor that if it was orange smoke that bellowed up Carrot Top would be the appointee. Hahaha.

It's Ru Paul!

My co-worker just observed that the Cardinals need a better offense, not a new Pope.

@2
"Habemus Papem"

The pedophilia is assumed.

@1
If you believe the prophecy of St. Malachy, this will be the last pope. They can brick it up after.

@18: you beat me to it.

Can't remember where I saw this, maybe here:

He's only 76! I guess he carried the youth vote.
23
Lighten up, Pope Francis.
24
@13 for the win.
25
Who is this "we?" I don't need a pope and I don't want a pope.
26
Yeah, I'm with tkc @25... who is this "we" you're talking about?
Ain't my pope. My pope's name is Pope Phabulous.
27
@25: I third that, and am proudly non-Catholic!!

@25
Well, it's a bit late now. If you didn't want one, you should have said so before they went to all this trouble.

Kids today. Always ungrateful. Next you'll be saying you don't want an archbishop.
