Latest Odds On The New Pope


pope-benedict-horizontal-large-galleryIt’s Pope Benedict XVI’s last day on the job.  And Paddy Power, Ireland’s biggest bookmaker, has the odds out on who the next Holy Father will be. Cardinal Peter Turkson (Ghana) and  Archbishop Angelo Scola (Italy) are the favorites at 3/1 odds.  Followed by Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone (Italy) at 4/1 and Cardinal Marc Ouellet (Canada) at 7/1.  Our own Cardinal Timothy Dolan is listed at 33/1.  And you can even wager on U2′s Bono at 1000/1 odds.

Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, sounds Italian, but he's not. He's American.

If you really want to know who will be the next and last pope, go to Revelation 17, there is the answer, the end is here!!!! How many would like to have John Paul II reigning again?

I liked that one pope we had; the one with the hat, drove the funny car, got shot. We should get him again.

There's going to be an Asian pope soon, but Ron's opinion of an African pope seems more realistic.

The next pope will be part of the Super Adventure Club.

It's gotta be Turkson.  There are vast numbers of African children without proper guidance just sitting for the taking.

Scola was the one responsible for most of the latest cover ups according to that HBO film. My guess is they'll reward him for it.

Those Bono odds are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too low... this gig isn't nearly big enough for his ego.

 @Rash wow Popie reminded me of an old Don and Mike bit. Mike did the Popes voice and was selling pope branded products like "Popesi" instead of Pepsi.... I found it funny anyways.
