Heh.
From the WSJ's weekly Tony and Tacky segment: "A Feb. 24 corporate press release from Costa Rica goes on for six paragraphs about the health and tenure of Pope John Paul II, speaking reverentially about his 'unshakable devotion to his calling,' and quoting one Barry 'Action' Jackson as saying the pope is a 'stand-up dude' and 'I wish him a long life.' Then comes the real point: Mr. Jackson is the president of BetOnline.com, which 'is pleased to offer odds on: 'Who will be our next Pope?' ' How's that for a kicker?"

So very sacriligious, and yet oh so funny.
