Someone isn't always better than you.

My mom used to tell me "There's always someone smarter, bigger, and better than you, so be humble." She said it in German of course--which sounds a bit more harsh than English because of the accent.

Well, that philosophy is not true for me. I've reached the top of the pile. There is no one on earth (or the Universe for that matter) that is better than me. I am the best at what I do.

I don't talk about it much because I'm humble, but it's true. I've worked hard and now I've made it. And you can too. You can't be Pope like me, but I'm sure you can excel in some area.

If my mom were alive today, I'd tell her that she was wrong. Dead wrong.

Theres got to be something in the Bible that says something like "I god shall strike down thy dumbass who imitates thy Pope" It is pretty funny from some sick and twisted point of view.

I like the idea of being able to communicate with you on such an oh-so-personal level. This way here, as you do stuff that pisses me off I can just let you know about it quickly. The other guy, JP, he didn't have a blog. Somebody should have told him about Blogger because it's free so he wouldn't have had to spend any Pope dollars to have it.

We all know JP was real tight on the budget like that. I don't blame him.

Hey, don't you consider the lord to be better than you? It is the religion you serve, right?

And clip your toenails more often!

Dark and Beautiful,

His Holiness is doctrinely correct: There is no one above him. God is not a human being, so Benedict XVI is top of the heap.

Of course God is "better." He is perfect, while his holiness in merely infallible, and infrequently at that.

Mama's boy...but she still loves you from afar; I know the woman of hope and pain. She is beautiful. She could have been a Lute. I love her. I love her. 4th.
