Stampede

They just started putting my face on stamps, and people are crowding around the Vatican Post Office to get one. I’m encouraging everyone to collect all three.

I’m a little upset about what the Vatican Post Office had to say:

“Though people have lined up to buy the first Benedict stamps, the crowds are smaller than those that gathered for the stamps issued after Pope John Paul's death.”

I wish the Vatican Post Office would just keep quiet about that. It doesn’t look good that J.P.’s memorial stamp is more popular than mine.

But wait, didn't he have to DIE to get a popular stamp?

Or should I say a POPEular stamp?

Pope Joe, I'm going to say this gently: CONCEALER. Around the eyes. It will up your telegenic factor considerably.

JPII knew his way around a camera.

PRIDE COMETH BEFORE A FALL.
You'd do well to remember that, Benny.
You're jealous of a dead man!

Your Holiness

The sooner you die, the sooner you will have long queues for your stamp. That's just the way it works. Accept it.

You could have at least asked, like most people, if you look fat in any of those pictures!
Just my two cents.

Most Holy Father, the Indians have a saying, "If you want to go to Heaven, you yourself must die."
My point is of course that if you want the really LONG lines for your stamps, you gotta die for it.

I mean this in the best possible way.

I want to know more about the three different versions of the stamp... is there one from your childhood? Is there one from your Hitler Youth days? And one from the present day? Perhaps the Hitler thing is a turn off. Go figure.

Maybe you should try other robe colors.

Purple - it just looks cool.

Pink - show everyone that you are secure in your manhood.

Blue and White - show everyone that you are not a nazi. End that whole episode once and for all.

Gold - just because you can.

Rasta colors - ya mon! Show the people that you are down with the funky skunky smelly green stuff.

Tie Dye - hippies need to be saved too!

We all know who the REAL Pope is. You've got my vote, Papa.

I have an idea, dude... why don't you use your Liquid Paper to cover J.P.'s memorial stamps? That would surely make you even more popular than him.

Try it and let me know if it worked.

I KNOW THAT YOUR YOUTH AS A BIT SHADY, POPE JOE.

JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE HIDDEN YOUR PAST FROM THESE MORTALS DONT THINK THAT I HAVE FORGOTTEN YET.

I hope they at least put you on the self-stick jobbies. At least then you won't have people licking on you all day long. That could be pretty disgusting. Not everyone who buys stamps is a hot babe. You would also have ucky old men licking on you. French people too. Oh perish the thought.
If I were you I'd demand they get you onto those self-stick stamps and mighty quick.

I am with winterwheat on this one - I think the problem is your eyes. Very, very scary.

Would you send me a signed postcard with your stamps on it and postmarked from the Vatican?
Thanks.

Yeah, it doesn't bode too well for the length of your papacy. Keep a low profile, man.
