Running for Pope
Google "running for pope" and you'll see a growing number of websites and blogs devoted to some of these long-shot candidates... clearly most all with tongue planted firmly in cheek. Someone (or something) named Avery Ant has declared his candidacy, and even has a video on his website. His qualifications are his ability to speak Pig Latin and a promise to "kick antichrist ass." He's also unemployed and needs the job.
Another person named Dennis is also campaigning on a platform to establish Web-based masses (there might actually be something to this) and a reduction in the tithing rate from 10% to 9%.
Just one more thing to illustrate how much has changed since the last papal election...
UPDATE: As the papal conclave draws closer, online campaigning is taking on a more serious tone. MSNBC reports that individuals and even archdiocese are using websites to promote their favorite cardinals.
