    Hey there, popeheads.

    There's this wee little board I post at, and we were thinking about inviting new members. Now this may be a long shot, and I don't know if any of you have tried it, but I've sent an e-mail to the Vatican (http://www.vatican.va):

    Hello,

    I hereby invite His Holiness Pope John Paul II to our messageboard "What Do You Know About My Image Duplicator?" [link]. It's a small, friendly club of about 4 people, a male equivalent of Sex And The City, if you will. We don't often invite new members, but we hear good things about Pope John Paul II, so we're willing to give it a try. However, we maintain the right to edit his posts and, in the case of gross misconduct on his part, expel him from our site. We trust, though, that such measures won't be necessary. Please think about it.

    Thanks in advance, yours sincerely,

    The "What Do You Know About My Image Duplicator?" administration.


    The cool thing is, one of our members is actually called Jon-Paul, so that might work in our advantage.


    Always a pleasure to unlock a Debo original

    I wonder what username will he choose... I think His_Holiness_John_Paul_II hasn't been taken.

    //checks

    No, it hasn't.

    I can't wait to chat with the Man In White!

    I was hoping for Darth_John_Paul_II, but whatever. As long as he posts my life will be complete!

    Knowing the Pope he'd probably pick something like CoolDude4765234 just to throw us off. Such a prankster, The Pope.

    Are you The Pope? Unless you are, we're not advertising.

    But if you are PM me for the link. :)

    Yeah, Darth_John_Paul_II is the screen name I would be expecting if the Pope ever visited a Star Wars message board.

    Oh you should of told me you wanted him.
    He is an old family friend...and I do mean old!

    Let me give him a call, I will report back when he gives his response.

    Phone conversations with him can be long! He goes on and on.

    anyway I will see what I can do.

    Why does he get a title and VIP colors? He's no ex-mod.

    Amazing.

    I agree, Asimov was a genius. I never really was that keen on sci-fi, but I liked the "Foundation" series. Very inventive.

    Parody act schmarody act. Actually, it's a common misconception, but the members of the Nee Gees, being raised by foster parents in Cuba, had never even heard of the Bee Gees. The name and similarity in style were entirely coincidental.

    Whats the difference between the Vatican message boards and TFn message boards ?

    One is dedicated to a religious old guy who is loved by millions, and hated by millions more........who had some really good ideas in the 70s, but has really lost the plot now...........and the other is the TFn message boards.
