Pope Benedict XVI RIP

I’ll never forget the time on a visit to Rome we couldn’t get into St Peter’s Basilica because he was sat on the steps mumbling into a microphone. Anyway, the Vatican are crowdfunding for a memorial, donations via Papal.

I once met him at a party. He was unsurprisingly bigoted and VERY outdated

The “cba” tweet when he stepped down was one of my all time faves

Looking forward to the highlights reels on Twitter trying to prove he’s the GOAT.

Surprised this is headline news. Old ex-popes die all the time

Is this the Pope that stopped being pope while he was still alive and there is a Netflix film about it?

I like this little detail from BBC news:
“Normally, the camerlengo has the role of officially confirming the pope’s death, traditionally by tapping his head three times with a small silver hammer and calling out his name.”

Is that where Maxwell’s Silver Hammer comes from?
