Pope Idol


Time to drag the Catholic Church into the 21st Century with reality TV, live Twittering and, you guessed it from the title, Pope Idol.

We don’t have to get rid of the white smoke – it can still be done when the final winner is announced, but the weekly battles for your votes will be what makes the difference.

Thing is, we’re going to need to appoint three or four celebrity judges.

That’s where you come in.

Suggest who you think would make an awesome celebrity judge for Pope Idol, and once we’ve got the whole thing sorted, I’ll contact Simon Cowell and see if he’s happy to license this world-wide.

    If they really want a Pope who is representative of the Catholic Church then they would be
    best advised to select one who looks like a child molester. Looking at that lot
    there is no shortage of possible candidates.

    If we’re going to drag this lot into the 21st century & popularise the selection then the campaign needs a catchy jingle. How about:

    “Take me down to Vatican City…
    …where the smoke is white & the boys are pretty.”

      Hmmm How about George Thoroughgood – Dirty deeds done dirt cheap……dirty deads done dirt cheap……..

      • Agent BallSack

        Thats Bon Scott and AC/DC. Thorogood (note spelling) was Bad to the Bone

        • Jimmie

          Quite true – my bad (I was 4 years old in 1980 so I’ll blame it on my youthfulness!)

  • You’ve left Father Ted out of the montage WO

  • PlanetOrphan

    In the name of Universal Forgiveness they should appoint the Arab League as judges M8!

  • Troy

    Any guesses of how many of those pictured are kiddy fiddlers. Given the prevalence of this amongst their ranks odds are there is at least one there.

  • Zephyr Cobalt

    What! No women candidates. Still in the 15th century.

  • Agent BallSack

    Nope I cant do it. I have no idea which one isnt the paedophile.

    Celebrity Judge 1: OZZY OSBOURNE

    • Agent BallSack

      All hail the dark master!

    • James M

      Actually I think Ozzy should be the next pope. He certainly would do a better job protecting boys from being buggered.

  • Patrick

    Title is wrong – should read “Pure Evil”

  • steve and monique

    The one who has not buggered boys,put your hand up?.

  • thor42

    I’ve always thought that the pope looked like Emperor Palpatine……


  • TomTom

    Do it Hunger Games style? God can sponser his fave candidate!
