New Pope, Same as the Old Pope, Maybe Not

Newly selected Pope Francis has declared “Oh, how I would like a poor church and for the poor.” This is indeed a Sesame Street Moment (How is this one thing unlike the others?).

Since this attitude is completely contrary to centuries of behavior of the Church and previous Popes who have amassed immense wealth and worn Gucci pumps while bathing in glorified architecture and art treasures . . . and is a direct threat to the power mongers in the Vatican, I wonder if we should be setting up a pool to see how long this Pope lasts. They did away with John Paul without too much fuss, so they could do it again.



  1. Oh, he’s no different from the others. Just another conservative. Nothing to see here, move along, move along…

    • Yeah, but that’s about issues (Gesundheit!). I’m talking about the Vatican having a garage sale and giving the proceeds to the poor. This guy is doomed, I tell you. Mark my words. He will succumb to food poisoning or some rare disease withing the year. A poor church! Hah, only spiritually and morally; they will keep the bling!

      • They prefer the term Pectoral Accessories, thank you 🙂

        • Odd, can they cover the gluteus maximus? If not, what good are they to a clergyman?
