<hyperventilating>So, earlier, I was waddling past the stairs to get on the elevator when I saw on TV that white smoke came out. At first I was concerned that a hamburger processing plant was going up in smoke but then I saw it was about the Pope!

I rushed (ok, waddled a little bit faster) to my desk and dropped my hamburgers when I saw this video:

That's right, a LIVE Vatican SmokeCam 2000.


THEN THEY TURNED THE LIGHTS ON!!!

My definition of "slightly dusty" may be a bit loose.

Update 5:

As this saga wears on, some men in suits are apparently doing laundry. Appears the Papal bedspread was washed and they are now hanging it to dry.

Early scouting reports put the Mystery Pope at an 80 for his "Catholic-ness" tool.

His name comes in at 35, though. Pope Francis.
Big fancy stick carrying at 50
Hand waving is a 60

Update 14:

The new Pope just looks like a Pope. I'd rate him 70 overall.

Wait, I just realized I don't have any hamburgers around...NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

The Phoenix area is extremely weak for hamburgers. However, for the Spring Training visitor who cares about hamburgers, here are my Favorite Hamburger places in the area. Note -- I don't get out of my backyard too much:

1. Chicagoland Hot Dogs and More (Mesa)
2. Tom's BBQ (2 locations in Mesa)
3. Portillos (Scottsdale)
4. In & Out Burger (Tempe/Scottsdale)
5. O'Sullivan's (Mesa)
