What refreshing changes would he make? What is the pay like? Is there a parking space?

"BLOKE DOWN THE PUB" (He's too shy to come here personally.. -- .. -- ..) says:

What a stupid concept ... everyone knows that one cannot apply for the Pope's job; one has to be specifically selected by a Vatican conclave, and that in order to do that they employ a lot of smoke and mirrors. Not only that, TP is an atheist hence that would also rule him out for the job since those Vatican conclaves appear to be somewhat historically biased in favor of Roman Catholics. So please stop harassing me with your stupid suggestions, otherwise I will have to send Big Valerie over to your place to give you a good thumping.

I feel sure that there are cats in the Vatican to keep the rats and other vermin at bay.

10> So, is there any reason why you havn't applied for the Italian Prime Minister's job? It sounds right up your street.

2> What a stupid concept ... everyone knows that one cannot apply for the Pope's job;

Are you saying that Terry Pratchett would not be able to be the next pope just because he isn't a RC? Are they allowed to do that? I mean, what is the world coming to, pray?

I think that Vetinari would do a better job. There is a lot needs doing in the Vatican and I think that he would sort it all out very creatively.
