    White smoke rose from a Sistine Chapel chimney and bells rang Tuesday, signaling the selection of a new pope.

      I couldn't care less actually. But since all TV stations show it at the moment, I have to watch it.

              I don't see why they see the need to change their names?

                Tradition I guess....

                Going back to some names they chose before, there were some weird ones.
                Like Innocent. lol, Pope Innocent. The ironic thing is some of the Innocent Popes are the least innocent in history, including at least one who was involved in the Crusades...

                  This new pope is "Pope Benedict XVI", sounds like a traitor. John Paul II was a pretty cool name for a pope. But this one is corny.

                    Strange. I thought that the Roman Catholic Church in an attempt to appear more modern were going to announce the decision on "Pope Idol"!

                        that "joke" (if you can call it a joke) sucks the proverbial monkey nuts...!

                        That is not the only thing that sucks proverbial monkey balls.

                            benedict Interesting...

                            How about Pope Zargon I? :P

                            They need to spice up the names. Sorry if I offended anyone.
