I'm sure they gave him a thorough background check and stuff, and I know I shouldn't judge someone solely on appearance, but if you were going to make a movie about a pope who makes a deal with space aliens to take over the world and serve as their liaison, wouldn't you cast a guy who looks like the current pope?

Maybe the last one looked so pious that anyone following him is going to look bad, kind of like Danny White with Roger Staubach. I don't know.

He's German though and they're never happy.

Would you be happy if you had to drink warm beer?

It's a lot quicker to just sit the 12 pack down by you than having to get up every 5 minutes for another one...

Ice cold beer is for people who don't like the taste of beer. Like girls.

I was thinking more along the lines of Montgomery Burns, but he definitely ain't got that grandfatherly thing going on. :D

One thing is for sure, though... I wouldn't want to drink a warm Coors. Of course, rice beer is to real beer what spam is to real meat.

Beer aside, doesn't he look like the kind of pope who goes into his private apartment, pulls out a secret shortwave radio, and says to an unknown party, "My plan is working. They don't suspect a thing. BWAHAHAHAHA!"?

Duh, he's not Pope Pious, he is Pope Benedict as in Benedict Arnold.

Hmmph! Looks like the thread hijaking police is in full force today.

I already said he looked like Palpatine! What more do you want from me!? :p

This seems like a hot thread, so does anyone remember what LJ's exact quote about Penn State was?

Was it "I don't play for f*cking Penn State no more."

OR

"I don't f*cking play for Penn State any more!"

I approve of your post. Your post was good.

Spam is pretty good if you cook it in a frying pan. I like fried baloney sandwiches, though.

Fried baloney is alright. You have to fry the taste out of it.

If I'm going to eat something fried, I'd prefer it had a good taste to begin with.

I wonder if the pope eats fried bolognia?

(Nice tie-in there, eh?) :D

I bet he does, but in an evil way. Because he looks pretty evil. What's up with that?

Nothing quite like a meal of spam and macaroni, washed down with a nice healthy cup of powdered milk! It's just not right when the only thing you really like on your plate are the green beans... ROFL
