Reasons the Pope Will Step Down

Pope Benedict XVI is stepping down on February 28th.  Here's our thoughts as to why.

5: The world ends March 1, and he wants to get one good night of partying in.

4: He just learned the Pope can't date!

3: Just once he'd like to sleep in on a Sunday.

2: Neck problems--that hat is heavy!

1: He's got to get ready for Spring Training.

The Pope actually cites deteriorating strength, and we wish him well. Abdicating a position of absolute authority is rare in history--good for him for putting the needs of his group ahead of his ego.  Don't even try to lie and say you don't have your own theory.  Tell us below!


  1. Leaving to become a full-time shoe model. "I'm too sexy for sexy for Milan, too sexy for Milan, New York and Vatican..."

  2. Those look to be some expensive kicks... It is Fashion Week, after all...

  3. Giving the papacy up for Lent? It's a bit extreme...

  4. Was the Papacy a bad habit for him? Raises all kinds of questions...
