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

His ring was only on fire during his first year in the seminary. Then it was someone else's turn in the barrel.

A large portion of the world has been eating the Pope's shiat for many centuries now, but personally I think I'll pass, thanks.

oryx: One day you're infallible, the next day you're not. How does that work?


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

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?

kimwim: 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?


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

I totally misinterpreted this.

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/

How true is that?

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.
