    That is probably one of the top-5 coolest things I’ve ever seen on the web. I like the bird at the end. I was just watching “Shoes of the Fisherman (1968)” yesterday and it’s pretty cool how much that movie got right.

    But I’d hate to be the guy who hadn’t really thought much about what they’d want their Pope name to be and kind of froze up and said something stupid when they asked him. “Presenting: Pope Pope the First!”

      I was thinking the same thing. Also, the title “scrutineer” is pretty nifty.

      According to Pope John Paul I’s own confession, he didn’t believe he was going to be elected, and hadn’t thought much at all about his papal name beforehand. In the circumstances, “John Paul the First” was an inspired choice!
