OMG The Pope Is Retiring!

…and the first thing George wants to know is whether or not there are retirement benefits.  As though he’s going to throw his hat in the ring.  Though apparently he IS eligible for consideration, since you don’t have to be a Cardinal, just a Catholic.

Of course, he–he being George, not he being the current Pope–already has his theme song ready for his ascendency to St. Peter’s Chair.

Which, may I remind you, looks like this:

The main altar, St. Peter's Basilica, Vatican City.

The main altar, St. Peter’s Basilica, Vatican City.

Yeah.  That’s bronze, people.  A 60-foot tall, carved, 17th-century bronze canopy, over a giant block of Greek marble.  Can you believe the Pope is giving all this up?  To go where–a two-bedroom condo in Boca?  They haven’t had a Pope retire in 600 years; my guess is they don’t have a modern contingency plan.

Anyway.  Here is George’s theme song for when he becomes Il Papa.

Looking forward to some joyrides in the Popemobile!  Dominus vobiscum, spiritus sancti, y’all!

Looks like I'm going to have to give this an update.
