I would go back to Church if this happened. (I Get Paid For Doing This)

So today I am oddly fascinated with the fact that there is going to be a new Pope in town, and that resulted in the last few minutes' conversation with Paralegal and Clerk in which I told them that I was oddly fascinated with this process.

And so we had a bit of a discussion, briefly, in which I mentioned that it really doesn't matter because all the new Popes are pretty much indistinguishable from the old Popes, and then Clerk asked whether any Popes had ever come from outside of Europe, and I said I was pretty sure that all prior Popes had been EuroPopes.

And Clerk then said it would be great if we had an African Pope named, or perhaps a Canadian Pope, and I said that a Canadian Pope would be "the politest Pope ever," and that perhaps maple syrup would be served at Mass, and then congratulated myself aloud for reducing a religion and a country to the most obvious stereotypes all in one sentence.

At which point Clerk said that would be a great thing, to have a Canadian Pope, because:

"You could have Silver Dollar Pancakes for communion and syrup instead of wine and dip the pancakes into it."

That is so incredible that we stopped the conversation and I told Clerk she won the day.

I think I'd go Catholic if they started to do that. They should seriously get someone from Africa or South America. Another stodgy old white guy isn't how you breathe life into the church.

There is some talk that there is the chance this time for the first American Pope. Not that I think that would be a great idea, but it might be better than a traditional European Pope.
