Pope Benedict XVI resigns his position as head of the papacy. The Catholic Church is left reeling. World is shocked.
And yet, in the past month alone the internets has exploded MULTIPLE times… over the Grammy’s, a blackout at the Superbowl, whether Beyonce lip-syncs or not, the news that JJ Abrams will control the hearts and minds of both Star Wars AND Trek fans, and the revelation that every professional athlete anywhere is probably maybe taking something…
24 hour news cycle, baby.
My tip for the next biggest news story of all time?
Beyonce is elected the next Pope, but only after a power failure at Vatican City means the papal conclave is forced to release fake white smoke from their chimneys. The smoke is later revealed to contain traces of HGH, Beyonce resigns after a week in disgrace, only to then be cast as both Lieutenant Uhura in the next Star Trek film and the ass-kicking descendent of Mace Windu in Star Wars episodes 7-9.
And even THAT’S only gonna tide us over for a week. At best.
Wake me when the zombie apocalypse finally happens, won’t you? Now THAT’S news.
