Papacy 101

Everything you ever wanted to know about Papal Transition, including a link to a betting sheet with odds on who will be chosen, how long it will take, and what he'll choose for his new name.

Bonus trivia: I found out that my birthday saint, St. Charles Borromeo, was one of the few cardinals to be canonized, *and* he turned down the papacy.

The next pope should call himself "Urban". And send the Popemobile to Pimp my Ride. It's the hip thing to do. Another choice would be "Christ 0wnz j00", but leet speak probably isn't apropriate for the church even if all the kiddies are doing it. Oh! And why not "George Ringo"? Why front on the other two Beatles? Man, I can amuse myself with this all day...
