    Pope Benedict has announced his retirement slated for Feb. 28, due to health problems. Will the next Pope be the last Pope?

    I had to look twice as my eyes read "St. Malarky".

    As there must be a rush to get a woman into position, less fallout from sexual misconduct in the ranks;)

    So, any bet's on who will have the pleasure of being the last king?

    I'm guess it will be The anti-Christ.

    Some, aside from the anti-christ/last Pope scenario, are speculating that it's time for a Black Pope. Others are saying an Irish Pope. Someone said a female Pope. A Black Irish Female Pope? That will happen when "Pigs Fly." Well "Swine Flu" and the truth is stranger than fiction!

    Does Mr. Pope get a retirement package?

    It could be a virtual Pope on the internet forever.

    Nope, because The Anti-Christ would get a lucrative offer from Fox News.

    I like what they said about this potential successor:

    Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi: The Italian-born president of the Pontifical Council for Culture, Ravasi, 70, is hugely popular through his Scripture lessons on TV and radio. On a crusade to keep the church relevant, he blogs, quotes Amy Winehouse on Twitter, and criticizes priests for boring sermons. An archaeologist by training, he's a brainy biblical scholar who is seen as a theological moderate.

    I can see it now on twitter from this future Holy Father: "They told me I should reconsider {doctrine/issue} - I said: 'No, no, no'...."

    Which mean he will likely not get appointed.

    He's stepping down Feb 28, but his successor may not be chosen for maybe a month.

    March Madness.
