    I lol’ed.

    I LOL’ed, too…with the thought that this job probably falls outside of Equal Opportunity…

  • observer

    Silly Hat…very tempting.

    They left out a lot of little perks. It’s a lifetime appointment, you get all sorts of great palaces to live in, rule your own little kingdom, servants to take care of your every need, and of course, a flashy ring that people will bow down and kiss. How awesome is that? And you can absolve anybody of their sins, either out of the goodness of your heart, or for a hefty fee.

    You get to choose your own name too. Most seem to base it off another pope so I’d kind of start with something descriptive, like Pope Pius. OK, maybe that wasn’t meant to be like pious, but I could be Pope Unscrupulous the First, couldn’t I? That has a nice ring to it.

    Only downside is having to work Christmas and Easter. What a bummer.

    I’m already a Discordian Pope. Why would I want to be a plain old Catholic one instead?

      Do you have your own Swiss Guard? Do they carry halberds? I doubt it.

        I don’t have a golden throne either, now that I think about it. Maybe I should give this Catholic pope thing a try.

        • Conspirator

          You look over the history of the papacy and you’ll see that the pope’s don’t bother with all those rules the other silly Catholics have to abide by. Looks like a pretty sweet gig to me.
