Looks like his plan a out running the next Church scandal failed miserably
 
2013-02-28 06:51:54 AM
That's probably not everything he's shoving into his box

Watching the Today Show.  Cardinal Dolan just flirted with Savannah Guthrie.

I think it must be a weird feeling tonight when the Pope is retired, the guard leaves, he goes to the vacation palace, and other than servants, he'll be...all alone.
 
2013-02-28 07:22:30 AM
I did hear that despite papal tradition, he's keeping the red Swingline too.

A Vatican mug, a gold watch and an altar boy.

I find it very odd that he and the new guy are sharing a secretary. Can't they afford two? Why are they doing this?
 
2013-02-28 07:52:51 AM
Are they going to have security escort him out?

Mugato: Are they going to have security escort him out?


Imagine what the exit interview must be like.

This Sunday instead of hitting an Altar Boy he can just hit the Snooze
 
2013-02-28 08:17:56 AM
I just hope he remember to delete all the "personal" stuff off his computer before leaving.
 
2013-02-28 08:19:24 AM
Don't they usually wait until Friday to fire people? As long as they lock him out of the network and his email by end of day there shouldn't be any huge issues.
 
2013-02-28 08:26:45 AM
And he retires to a square half-kilometer of diplomatic immunity.
 
2013-02-28 08:29:36 AM
Shredding papers. Magnetizing hard drives.
 
2013-02-28 08:29:41 AM
I heard he took all the "P" keys off of the keyboards.

He is definitely not going to throw his ring into the fires of Mordor.

2013-02-28 08:33:34 AM
I heard that he gets to live in a cloister and will have zero contact with anybody.

How true is that?

/how will he get food, etc.?
 
2013-02-28 08:33:37 AM
Exit interview?

Popes don't resign.
DIplomatic immunity, eh?
Sounds like a good gig.
 
2013-02-28 08:37:30 AM
With the Catholic churches history, his resignation might be proof of his holiness.

He'll have contact with people within the Vatican. He won't be making any public appearances, though.
 
2013-02-28 08:42:38 AM
I wonder if he gets to keep his hat collection.

JRoo: With the Catholic churches history, his resignation might be proof of his holiness.


I suspect his retirement will not be a long one. How natural the causes, I'll leave to the tin foil hatters to sort out.

I don't know about the ring, but I understand he's does get to hang out in Gandalf's castle afterwards:  http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headlines/2013/02/from-vatican-city-to-ca s tel-gandolfo-the-popes-digs/

When you look at his old computer, don't click on the folder that says "Holy Christ!"  You don't want to know what's in there.  Or have an investigator standing by when you do.

Well he is a preist, he's probably a fan of pen15

Anyone check his bags for the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch?
 
2013-02-28 08:56:23 AM
So long, Mr. Pope.  The last guy seemed cooler.  Maybe the next guy will be interesting in some non-Nazi way.
 
2013-02-28 08:58:49 AM
the Pope will depart the Apostolic Palace by car from the San Damaso Courtyard. From there, he will be driven to the Vatican heliport, At 5.15 p.m. he will be flown about 30 km from Rome. The Holy Father will then briefly greet the faithful from the central balcony of the Apostolic Palace.

That's a big palace.

Benedict: "God said I could quit living in the lap of luxury in a palace of gold and silver"

Moses:  "wait..40 YEARS???  In the farking DESERT???  For doing what you ASKED ME TO DO???"

Yea.  ISW says some weird things.

I find it odd, too.  I mean,...wait...

I totally misinterpreted this.
 
2013-02-28 09:02:28 AM
He's spending his final days influencing the people who will select the next pope, and he'll stay on as advisor.

Seems like the closest thing a 'celibate' guy could do to creating a dynasty. This is the way rich old dudes insure their sons and daughters continue to lead companies.
 
2013-02-28 09:02:33 AM
One day you're infallible, the next day you're not. How does that work?

Just once I'd like to see a German leader retire WITHOUT the need for lifetime confinement/imprisonment!

What else would a retiring Pontiff need?
 
2013-02-28 09:07:13 AM
he did try to make an effort at strengthening orthodox-roman relations, so I applaud him for that. May the next pope continue down that path.

If I was him, I think I'd be laughing all the way home and glad to be the fark out of there.

REALLY liked him and sorry to see him go..they will probably elect some black dude the next pope who will promptly fly to the USA, hob nob with our englorious leader and declare that catholics love baptists or some such nonsense

It's actually the first time a Pope will be able to clean up all the oiled jerk rags, little boy bones, and 3-IN-ONE oil that he stashed in the Most Holy Place.  I guess it's sort of a win-loss for the new Pope.  He'll have to start from scratch, but it'll really be his to own from day one.  It's kind of like replacing someone whose been fired versus quit.  In the fired guy's desk, you might find a bag of Cheetos and maybe some spare Bacos in the keyboard.  The guy who quit took everything of value and probably left a dump in the bottom drawer.  Hypothetical of course, but if you had the chance, would you eat some of the Pope's shiat?

No, but if I found it, i'd probably go "Holy shiat!"

Things that have the Popes DNA on them?

Reading might help you but then again, I am not entirely convinced that it works on people with blinders on.
