We're all going to Hell, but at least we'll be together.

This weekend I went to this flea market and I bought a cloak that I thought would be perfect for role-playing Lord of the Rings/Game of Thrones.  Then I found a tag sewn inside and realized that it probably belonged to the Pope.  I can only assume that he decided he needed to unload some of his vestments to pay for retirement.  Regardless, I think this means that I’m the new Pope.  Or that I’m running for Pope.  Something like that.

There are stains all around the hip line, which I hope is wine. Probably it was just sprinkler water and the Pope was like “Ah well, it’s only water” and then Jesus turned it into wine and the Pope was like “JESUS. THAT STOPPED BEING FUNNY THE 100th TIME YOU DID IT” and Jesus was like “Just wait.  It’ll come back around again.”

Technically it looks like a RenFest costume…until you turn around:

Yes, it's a cross, but in my defense I thought it was a giant "t" for "The Game of Thrones." Or "Mr. T." One of those.

Regardless, I think that I’m now the official Pope until the new one gets elected and I’m pretty sure that I get paid in hats, which is great because I totally have a face for hats.  Plus (unlike the last Pope) I won’t just join twitter and immediately get distracted and stop working, because I’m already good at not working but still pretending to work.  Also, I’d get to ride in the Pope-mobile, which is like a convertible that has a see-through top so your hair doesn’t get fucked up and you still get a tan.  Which is pretty smart and probably my favorite thing the Pope has ever invented.  Plus, if I run for Pope lots of religious people will be praying a ton.  Mostly about me not needing to be elected Pope.  And possibly some just praying for my soul.  So I just raised prayer rates and I DON’T EVEN HAVE A HAT YET.  That’s how awesome I am at being Pope.  I’m not even trying and already Jesus is probably super inundated with work.  Which he loves.   Because he’s not on twitter.

PS.  I need some slogans for my posters.  Because I’m pretty sure you run for Pope the same way you run for student council and that’s what I would have done if I wasn’t so high shy.  I’m thinking something like “Jenny for Pope.  She’s got issues but the last Pope was in the Hitler Youth so maybe stop judging her, asshole.”  Or something with ninjas.  People love ninjas.

  3. You know, if someone did find a cape that had once belonged to the pope at a flea market, it would probably be you. Also, I’m not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing. Since it could be from one of those old dead popes, and so it’s probably haunted.

  123. I can’t think of a catchy slogan, but if you become pope, I think that will automatically elevate Hamlet Von Schnitzel to a religious relic. He’ll need a super snazzy reliquary. Something made of gold and encrusted with precious stones. Or a Hello Kitty lunchbox. Actually, a mouse inside a cat’s lunchbox probably isn’t the best idea. Unless that’s how he was martyred. Holy shit, I think martyrdom could actually elevate Hamlet to sainthood. That’s totally how sainthood works, right? No? Maybe?

  124. All I can see in my head is a picture of you surrounded actual cardinals (taxidermied of course) with tiny voting ballots and signs with your face on them. I have no idea how many, (cause im not catholic) but I know there should be a lot of them…and its totally a popularity contest anyway so its completely like a student council election so you should be totally fine. Cause in my vision these cardinals seriously love you! Probably because your propaganda includes birdfeeders with vote for Jenny written in an envenly distributed mix of peanut butter & bird seed.

  137. In church vestment circles, that kind of cloak would be called a cope. It is worn by the Celebrant (priest, bishop, or whoever is presiding) for formal processions, blessings or celebrations. You’ll see them used sometimes in Episcopal (Anglican) and Orthodox liturgies, as well as Roman Catholic services. Red is used for Palm Sunday and the week before Easter, Pentecost, and for martyr’s feast days.

    Sadly, knowing all this geeky church trivia won’t make you Pope; but at least it gives you another rhyme to work with in your campaign.

  202. If that is a bishop’s cloak and has red wine stains, and the pope wears white, clearly you are going to have to switch to Chardonnay (or Sauvignon Blanc, my fave) after your inevitable election to the papacy. But don’t worry, it is a small price to pay to rid the holy mother church of choirboy-molesting priests, which you would do on day 1. And maybe days 2 – 1002 because there are a lot of them. Oh, and you could make all the cardinals switch to red dresses instead of robes, just because then they would have to be all humble cuz the whole world would see their skinny legs.

    Or you could just declare yourself the Pope of the Church of Jenny and avoid that annoyingly long flight to Rome.

    (This is like getting a celebrity endorsement for free, because who wouldn’t keep reading a sign that said Batman for Pope?

    And btw I think I have a great way for you to win the whole Pope contest. Being Pope is totally like a popularity contests, they vote for you. And people who you’ve converted would be totally obligated to vote for you. (I’m not a religion scientist, but I’m pretty sure that’s how it goes.)

    So, what you have to do is convert a but-load of people. Now I’ve heard tell that actual _live_ people get all critical when you try to convert them without asking (and who has time to ask)…

    “Quit throwing water on me!”
    “What the hell are you chanting?”
    “Where did that cloud of incense come from?”
    “I already have a God!”

    But I read somewhere that you can totally convert someone on their deathbed (and even after death) by giving them last rights. Which is (as far as I can tell) just chanting and sprinkling holy water on them. So here’s my plan…find yourself a few cemeteries of folks from another religion, and start a-chanting.

    (FYI, if you’re worried about where to get the holy water, just drop by a church, they totally leave it at the front door in a big bowl…unguarded. Probably so people can fill up squirt guns to keep under their bed against the threat of vampire attack.)

    PS. This may not actually work because I think in reality it’s only Cardinals that get to vote for Pope… But what the hell, when have we ever let reality get in our way before? Plus, I think the Cardinals will be impressed when you show them the pictures of you converting whole cemeteries of people for them…I mean that’s work they don’t have to do now.

    PPS. I’m pretty sure I’m going to Hell too…

  253. Well, I think you now need to reconsider those cat suits. While the seersucker is lightweight enough for summer, it’s obvious the cats will now need something a bit more CLERICAL, if you get my drift. Whether you call them acolytes or decide to make them altar boys or bishops, they will require new clothing.

    However, as a Pope needs their ‘staff’ to be dressed for the occasion, he can no longer have any problem with you dressing the cats in suits–albeit much more religious/clerical/formalware than the original seersucker.

    But I think they need to keep the bowties. Nothing says “I’m a furry Bishop of Her Holiness the Pope” more than pink bowties.

    If you became Pope I MIGHT believe in a God.

    I have a feeling that your kind of church might be something I could stomach.

    Pope on, Jenny. Pope on.

  282. Dang I wish you could VOTE for popes.

  283. Come to think of it, vestments are something that every working girl (or stay-at-home mum) should have in their wardrobe. You just never know when you might need them. And they can be dressed up or down.

  284. 285

    I love that you’ve used the former Pope’s ball sacks as planters on either side of your photo just then. It’s astonishing how much the pubes that came with resemble foliage, isn’t it?

  285. Shut the front door – the pope had a twitter account? ….and what box have I been living in?

    Kelly @ In the Mom Light Blog recently posted Happy Wife = Happy Life: 10 Rules for Husbands to Live By.

  286. Reading that has so cheered me up!
    I’m going to disguise myself as an old man and get myself a cardinals cope and hat, then sneak into the Sistine Chapel and get you made Pope.
    Just need to strap down my boobs and create some wrinkles and I’m fairly certain this plan is flawless.

  287. 288

    You look very regal

  288. This world would be a much better place if you were the Pope. Seriously.

    Kim recently posted He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother.

  289. You’d have my vote for Pope… unless I have to go to church to vote. I don’t go inside churches because I’ll likely ignite in flames.

    Joanne recently posted Resume do’s and don’ts – Some useful resume tips and advice.

  290. My brother and I got super bored a few summers back and, long story short, we got ordained online, for free. So, you know, if Catholicism can’t get beyond your vagina, the Universal Life Church will look past pretty much anything! (But seriously, my dog is also an ordained minister of the ULC.)

    In any case, I would totally vote for you for Pope, but I’m fairly certain I lost my say in such matters after the whole becoming-a-she-reverend thing.

    God speed, Pope Jenny!

    And then, your possible slogans:
    1. I’m good at stuff! And I will put the I CAN in vatican, motherfuckers! (ugh, that’s pretty bad…)

    crap my mind went blank. but just think how you could rock that pope-mobile – you could paint flames on it and decoupage hamlet von schnitzels’ picture on it. it would look like his little cape was blowing in the wind. and riding around in the pope-mobile all that would matter would be that cape, mismatched shoes be damned….

  292. You can Pope Ninja bitch slap people in the confessional and blame it on the sacramental wine…or holy water fights! Omg – the possibilities…

  293. Does anyone else see the man with his arm outstretched in the “stain” on the back of the cloak?

    Kristy Werner recently posted 9 Things I LOVE About Snow Days.

  294. New pope. Better than old pope. Now with more hair and more issues, but fewer calories.

    Katie recently posted A Romantic Weekend.

  295. If you want to use the “stop judging her, asshole” tagline, I would make sure the comma between judging and asshole is VERY visible. Otherwise, you’re going to have an entirely different kind of campaign on your hands…er…butt…er…

    Lisa Newlin recently posted What designers were worn on Oscar night.

  296. Put a big “A” on the front to cancel out the cross on the back. It will totally work.

    Or run for Pope.

    Or do both.

    I bet if they elected you as Pope, the smoke that would rise up from them burning that crap would have glitter in it and be all pink

    Evalynn Rose recently posted How to *properly* medicate your dog.

  297. Mr.Frankie the gender challenged female who lives inside my sisters taxidermy hamster would vote for you. He is very distinguished and once had an affair with the dread pirate Roberts, but he also likes to confuse parrots and borrow smokes off grandmothers. he fully supports women as pope but thinks your should aim higher. like supreme overlordess pope of the universe. it does have a nice ring.

  298. You would rock as a Pope!

    Mexmom recently posted Friends thru my internet connection.

  299. Actually, Jesus DOES have a twitter! https://twitter.com/jesus

    He’s pretty badass too!

  300. Because you’re now Pope-ess, I would like to recommend growing tomatoes in the Popemobile when you’re not using it. Fresh home (or Vatican, if you want to get technical) grown tomatoes to either enjoy or sell to tourists to pick up a little extra money for the Church’s coffers.

  306. Last night I was reading this blog entry to my hubby, because he swears up and down that we are exactly like you and Victor minus the whole taxidermied animals thing (to which I reply: we’re still young and there’s still plenty of time left in our lives… Unless our world is somehow destroyed. Funny, how I go to world destruction before I go to our individual deaths…) I closed my laptop after showing him the picture of the mongoose fighting the cobra, not bothering to close the actual window, and this morning when I open my laptop:


    Casey (my hubby) runs into the room and is all like “What! What!” And then he realizes that I’m reading your blog. He looks at me and says: “If we ever get the chance to meet Jenny and Victor, I’m totally shaking Victor’s hand because I can barely handle you and you and Jenny are far too alike.”

    I took the whole thing as a compliment, just so you know.

  307. That totally should have gone under the cobra/mongoose entry… don’t know why it didn’t. Oh well…

  308. BTW, I love the dangly glass ball-sack fake flower holders in the door way. Very avant-garde.

  309. i love the popemobile. I think you might get some cool shoes, too!

  310. At first when I read this I was all “The Pope doesn’t have to save for retirement, he’s Pope until he’s dead!” (which btw basically means being Pope is a death sentence… I’m going to Hell, I know) But then I remembered that the last Pope just retired, breaking that whole centuries long tradition so maybe popes do have to worry about retirement now. Well played Jenny, well played.

  311. I’m not reading through 311 comments to find out if someone else posted this, but:

    The Pope is now on Twitter! Hide your cloak!

  312. So I’m (really) late to the party (had to move cities, untangle myself from the clusterfuck that my relationship had become and save the world with unicorns, so you know, busy. And no internet.)… but does Ken know about this?

  313. […] The Bloggess ist Papst. Oder […]
