I'm sad today.

MTV passed on my “Pope My Ride” television show idea. I’m pretty bummed out right now. I need to find that Communion wine.

Dont worry, Joe. You could always pitch them with my hot new show idea, Pope'd, where you and your cardinal buddies play practical jokes on unsuspecting preists, all in front of hidden cameras.

Yeah, that coat and the your evil eye gives you the perfect Adolf Hitler style, why don't you start wearing a tiny little funny looking moustache?

Get a grip on reality and back off unless you really know the person. If you had read the blog before you posted comment on it you would of figured it out. Well, maybe.Please get help you definatly need it.

Oh Mr Pope man, your excellency, royal highness.
Why not try another satellite channel? I really think we could benefit from a papal show and rths schmucks cannot spot a good idea if it hits them between the eyes.
And thank you for being a blogging pope. It is good that you get on down with the geeks.

You can do your part in the war on drugs by going around talking to school kids "I'm the Pope, and it ain't cool to do dope"......Bradsblog

Sorry they turned down your show idea. Did you try name-dropping because that could help ya know. Maybe if they knew who your heavenly father is, they would have given you a shot. Try it next time.
Even though I'm not one of your peeps, I plan to stop back often.

Thank you all for your support. Being Pope is very stressful at times. I find blogging to be a relaxing activity.

I'm glad to see that the vatican is moving in a positive direction. Actively blogging can hardly be seen as anything else now, can it?

I have always wanted to taste the wine from your holy grail!!! I am sad to hear that you are not getting pinot anymore... But Merlot goes well with porterhouse steak medium rare and fresh gravy!

I like the idea of a show called "Pope'D"-- a la Punk'd. In this show, I would fake my death and have a Cardinal think he's going to be the next Pope. We'd get him all dressed up in my garb and tell him that we picked him to be Pope.

I show up with a camera crew and tell him he's been Pope'd. I'm sure we'll all get a good laugh.

I'm sad for you, too. I think it was a good idea.

Hi Benny

Thank you for dropping in on my blog. It was totally unexpected. I'm sorry to say that I missed out on seeing your special day. I rented a whole bunch of Sopranos DVD's from the video store and I left it too late to watch both. Something had to give. I hope you can forgive me.

On the subject of your tv show ideas - they all sound great. But I was wondering if maybe the right vehicle for you may be a pre-existing format. Ok I'll be blunt - I'm thinking of "Extreme Makeover" here.

I think you could really benefit. You don't have to be Joan Rivers to know when its time for an eyelid lift. I think this could really broaden your appeal. I'm saying this in a heartfelt way. Its getting so that I keep expecting to see Linda Blair leap out from behind you and throw you down a flight of stairs.

Anyway thanks again for popping by my blog. If you're ever in Sydney you should totally let me know. In fact if you come around the beginning of March next year we could do Mardi Gras together. In fact the new-look popemobile would look bloody great leading the parade. Or bringing up the rear. I'm not sure which you'd prefer.

Take care your holiness,

Jono xxx
