Pope Benedict XVIPublished by Toronto Mike on April 19, 2005 @ 12:58 in
Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger of Germany, a longtime guardian of doctrinal orthodoxy, was elected the new pope Tuesday evening in the first conclave of the new millennium. He chose the name Pope Benedict XVI.
I'm calling him Benny for short. Benedict reminds me too much of a toasted English muffin topped with ham and a poached egg and hollandaise sauce.
