New Pope Named

PopeGeorgesRingoIn a surprised move, the Vatican announced today that the new pope has eschewed the tradition of choosing a name based on that of a former pope or saint. A spokesman explained, “The impact of the brief tenure of the first Jean-Paul, followed by the beloved Jean-Paul II cannot be overstated. Our current holiness has chosen to honor them by taking the name Georges-Ringo.”

When asked for details, the new pontiff cryptically replied, “All you need is love.”
